Valentine Magic

The current challenge on the craftster papercraft board is to create a Valentine Matchbox Shrine that includes a surprise. I've just finished my entry, here's a sneak peek.

It measures 1.5" x 2" x .5" (not including the dangly bits)
Inside are a few bits for love magic: love powder, cinnamon sticks, comfry root, a rose bud, a lemon verbena leaf and a secret love note.
The surprise? The love note is written in lemon juice so the message can't be read unless you hold it to a flame.
The actual note says something a little different and is safely stowed away in the shrine :)


  1. Wow that is very nice!! I love the sectionals! It's sooo pretty! I also love how you used thread to wrap around it. It's a very nice detail!!

    I'm very excited for the challenge! I can't wait to see what everyone else is making!


  2. That is so amazing! I love the tiny bottle!
    Im really exited about the callenge too even if my entry is not finished yet :(

  3. I really can't wait to see what everyone else has made either. I wonder what all the 'surprises' will be.

  4. I love it! I have mine sitting her taunting me. I need to give it a bit more something, but it hasn't come to me yet!

  5. This is excellent! I just love that little bottle and the secret message!

  6. Love this so much! Especially the hidden message :) Such a sweet idea
