one word for you: addictive!
omigosh i l-o-v-e these little matchboxes! i found the template (that’s right! these are totally handmade!) here. thanks rachel at swap-bot for giving me yet another craft addiction. no really, thanks.
sigh. my paper/ribbon/doodad collection is being put to good use, though! i think these little boxes would make the sweetest way to tell a friend you’re thinking of her, send a love note to that special someone, or give a small piece of jewelry (maybe an engagement ring?). i have a feeling there will be quite a few of these in my future.
i can even add cute little quotes! the one with a tree says “friendship is a sheltering tree. – Samuel Taylor Coleridge” and the one with a bow says “a friend is a gift”. in the two boxes on the far right, the one with the pear says “we’re a perfect pair” and the other one has a teeny cherry and says “ma cherie”. on the inside of the one up top with the bee, it says “just because”. fun!
