Mini Treasure Box

I can't believe that this month is already flying by me! I am finishing up my Guest Designer Spot for Elemental Doodles and I made a mini treasure box to send Mel this month!

I used the Mystic Fairy set to make background paper with the doodle nd the butterfly. I then colored them with Metallic and Gelly Roll pens. Next I ran it thru the Cuttlebug to add some Dots. Cut it to size and adhered it to the match box. I then stamped and cut out the small leaf sprigs in the cone. I used my Metallic Glaze Gel pens to color the purple and then my Green Gelly Roll pen for the leaves. After adding some purple and black polka dotted ribbon around I adhered the sprig to the top of the box.

For the bottom I used rhinestones on each corner to make "feet" for it to stand on.
**Tip: "feet" make it stand nicer and you don't notice the small overlap of paper that is covering the matchbox and the ribbon. Without "feet" you usually have a bit of a wobble.

Inside I packed as many goodies as I good for her including some riibon, brads and charms. Matchboxes are fun to do and great to for giving little candies in!
