inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tale

I got the idea when I had to decorate a 250 ct matchbox for a swap on swapbot. The theme was sender's choice - and it had to be filled with embellishments. Ive considered the receiver's taste - and my want to send variety - hence the somewhat ecclectic look;).

  1. How to make a box. Princess On The Pea Matchbox - Step 1 1

    Ive used a big (250 ct) matchbox. I had already decided on the Princess on the Pea-theme, so when I looked for a matchbox in my drawers and found this with Hans Christian Andersen, I knew it was fate;).

    I filled the drawer with feathers - and since a princess is going to sleep on it - some flowers.

    For bed posts I used decorative pins wrapped with ribbons.

    And now for the pea; I used a green brad.
