a tiny message match box with a tiny envelope for a sweet friend;-D
My friend Sheila was having her birthday and i had seen this idea on the blog of freepretty thngsforyou .com, and thought that's a fun great idea for making this for a dear friend.
I had still some old little match boxes and thought that will help to clean as well for my moving.LOL so thank you fellow crafting person for share this with us;_D
At first i thought i will use the crafters idea , so i don't have to do a lot, i was short in time.
to many birthday girls in one month.LOL
But after all i used only the idea and one picture the rest was all mine.
Always the same and because i liked the crafting tooo much it cost me more time after all.;-D

i think this is sooo sweet to get and hold in your bag for when you're feeling badly and watch it.
i think you can use it as a love messages as well.

Note
the most time cost me making the patterns and finding the right pictures. and of course the drying time.
the time is without that. I have use after all hair spray to varnish the card and the outside.
it's not necessary.
The time is without the drying time.;-D
by the attachement there are some wrong ones in that , the start luciferdoosje don't use it.!!!
the 2 first one are the same, only use one of them;-D
i have done others in it with an other sturcture , not all of us has photoshop;-D

Have fun with the making of, there are lots of steps but they only will show you the how to much better so don't be afraid.LOL

hey thanks for hopping by!!!;-D
