Matchbox swap

For my first ever craft swap, I chose the matchbox swap. It seemed small enough to not be intimidating and I loved isabelchun's matchboxes. The idea was to decorate a matchbox and fill it with craft supplies and small crafted items.

I was partnered with the lovely sonjaboo whose matchbox I received yesterday. 

The outside is decorated to look like a camera. Isn't it cool? She tells me it done with paper clay although I'm not sure what that is. The inside of the matchbox is lined with a map.

Inside were a flower pendant, a couple of inchies, some fun rainbow buttons, some smiley stickers and a tiny envelope full of pretty sequins.

Here's a closer look at the pendant, It's made of glass with a real daisy inside. It's really fantastic - very three dimensional with lots of the detail of the flower visible.

Here are the inchies. I really love the one with the needle and thread. I'll have to put some thought into how to display them. I sure there will be lots of inspiration on craftster.

And finally, here's a close up of the teeny weeny envelope!

I'll post pictures of the matchbox I've made for sonjaboo once she's received it, so as not to spoil the surprise. In the meantime, have a look at the gallery for the swap.
