An altered matchbox - The Roses

Between waiting for glue to dry and searching for misplaced supplies I've been making altered matchboxes. 

There is something quite lovely about projects you can hold in your hand. The bling on this box adds a nice weight to the small thing.

I was searching through my stash of words for something like "still" or "bliss" but this little quote tugged at my heartstrings.

No matter what happens, you can face your challenges and overcome... for the roses will grow again.

This piece is listed HERE in the etsy shop

  1. Lovely Nichola! I know that feeling of waiting and misplaced items...they are always there- right in front of me,albeit, under a ton of other products and papers! heeehee

  2. Really like the matchbox! I have a cricut pattern to cut out the matchboxes. I just haven't used it yet. Shame on me. Thank you for the inspiration.
