Matchbox shrine...what was I thinking!!?

Well, I thought it would be a doddle to create a matchbox shrine but how wrong you can be!! Working on something so small and fiddly has been a challenge but an enjoyable one!
This swap was on UK Scrappers and I put myself forward to swap not just one but two matchboxes!! My themes were 'Oriental' and 'Grungey,gothicy, stampotique' (anybody dropping by from this swap will now know the recipients!!...sorry if i've spoilt it!!)

I posted my 'Oriental' themed matchbox today and I am rather pleased with the outcome. I made a picture book on the life of a Geisha. Not sure if my recipient will find it remotely interesting but I did!!!
Photos not the best but if was difficult to photograph to get it all in!!


  1. I love this one too - the way it folds out is just great and it looks so lush and sumptuous - I can't wait to see the other one. Thank you Jill - it's FAB!

  2. That is lovely Karen, I'm sure Frances will love it :) Your 2nd one sounds fab too ... can't wait to see that one (and also off to see if anyone else had the same theme as me) lol lol
