Hey Peeps!

Today i want to show you a matchstick box i made for a swap over in the US. Martica has been so nice to invite me in one of her fabulous swaps. The ladies that participate are extremely talented and her swaps are allways high end swaps.

I didn`t have a box in the specified measurements so i made one myself from scratch. The theme is Musical. (from Broadway and so on) I have used Phantom of the opera for my theme.

We were originally going to create a matching tag that fits inside the box but since my printer has gone awol i only had one image so i had to improvise. I made a tag that is pinned to the top of the box. If the recipiant wants to she can take it off. I also had an alteriar motive for doing it this way. I didn`t want to cover up the beautiful glittery paper with embellies. The paper is from the Mr. and Mrs. collection from Best Creation Inc. And i have purchased it here. And for those of you in the US you can buy it here.

The diecut behind the image is one i got from my homegirl Johanna in Sweden. She is one of my fav vintage cardmakers. She is soooo talented. If you want to visit her blog and see what she creates, you can visit her here.

More closeups:

I also put a little bit of goodies in it for the recipient.
