Spring is Here Matchbox

Hi everyone! I’m here to share a quick post of  a 300 count matchbox that I had altered over a year ago for a magazine call. It wasn’t selected so I put it back to share at a later date and since I have Spring fever…lol…I thought I would share. 🙂 
I used scrapbook paper, a variety of flowers, gems, dew drops, seam binding, and a “Spring is Here” sticker to create this vintage Springtime matchbox. Also I had found the little ceramic dove when I was cleaning so I added Crystal Stickles to it to glitter it up.

If you have any questions about how to alter a matchbox please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Friday is awesome and enjoy creating!!!


Easter Joy Tea Cup

Hi everyone! Is everyone ready for Spring??? Blooming flowers, longer days and warmer weather…I know I am. I have been on a creating frenzy of fun springy, flowery, Eastery crafty goodness and I want to share one of my latest creations.
I used the tea cup template and I printed on Purple Ant Glitter Cardstock which is from the Robin’s Nest and their whole Spring Collection is 20% off this month. Before running the cardstock through the printer I cut the ants off. Once printed I cut out and glued together. The paper doily I adhered to the saucer and glued the tea cup on top of that.
Also this month we are cross promoting with Altered Pages and we received some fun vintage digital images to play with. This bunny is from the Vintage Easter Garden Collection which I am just giddy over. I printed this on a piece of textured white cardstock which to me looks like it has been printed onto a canvas. I did fussy cut the bunny out and I saved the Easter Joys be Yours to make a tiny sign out of.
The outside of the tea cup I glued buttons, sequins and dew drops around the lip. I waded up a piece of tissue paper and adhered it inside the bottom of the tea cup and then glued the bunny to it. Then the real fun began by adding moss, tiny plastic eggs which I doctored up with glitter, paper flowers with gems and dew drops added.
I cut rosettes from the Spring Stripe Glitter Cardstock ,which is double sided, and added a sequin, dew drop and the little sign.

A tip if you have some of the store bought flowers that has many layers you can carefully take them apart and make flower buds with them. Also I added Crystal Stickles around the edges of the flowers for a glittery look.

I love the look of the bunny…so vintage!!! 🙂

Well, I hope you enjoyed my little tea cup I created and if you have any questions please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Thursday is wonderful and enjoy creating!!!
