I used an ordinary matchbox
Then I lined the inside with vintage text paper.
Afterwards I cut out an image and embellished it.
I placed some heavy plastic over the top and covered the edges with scalloped soldering tape. Then I soldered with lead free iron and aged the silver edge with black patina. I soldered a flourish to the top and some jump rings to the top and bottom. I put together a chain made from a variety of elements and voila, I have another new necklace!
This project was inspired by Marie from Lost Bird Studio.
The next project I made is a matchbox doll. Below is a picture of the matchbox when it's closed.
|When you start to open it, you can begin to see her matchstick legs.|
|...pull down the drawer and her legs get longer - haha, if only it was that easy|
This was inspired by this: Pinterest pin.
The last item to share with you is a paper doll. My dear friend Laura Haviland sent me one of her fun hangers and I used some stamps from Catherine Moore (bodice and skirt) & Levenworth Jackson (face).
Happy Friday - have a great weekend!
