The Matchbox & The Bookmark
So this is liked a tale of two crafts...but they were both for the same WTA, so they do belong together in a way. The first is one of the first bookmarks I have made in a more vintage style, I think it turned out rather well. I really loved the colours and the soft look it has to it. I used an old fashioned style of cotton string to embellish.
The other craft featured today is a matchbox I made for my recipient in a vintage style postal theme. The outside is wrapped with a handcrafted paper (not by me) in a walnut colour. It is decorated with different images and stamps. Inside I filled it with different postage stamps and trinkets.
