Just for you ~ Matchbox with Just Rite

Hi there… hope you have a great day. Wow… seams Niklas finally is getting better, i had the a full night sleep since Friday. Pewwwhhhh…
First he got the stomach flue at the same time with the regular flue and than 2 hours after we came home from the doctor he got a ear infection. Poor little guy.
Today’s challenge over on “Cute Card Thursday” has been changed and we want you to be able to submit ANYTHING you like :-) isn’t this great? Just easy now before the busy holiday time.

I slowly start to alter some things to make my presents look prettier. I must say i am a very bad gift wrapper :-) My box is from the dollar store and i have now matches for a very, very long time :-) but what can you do? I really like those big boxes.

The image is from Just Rite’s “Vintage Christmas” set available through The Simply Stamp Ribbon Store”, as well as the gorgeous crinkled ribbons. Those ribbons are very, very different from the ones you can alter yourself. They are kind of flimsy… the ones Sharon has have a nice texture – kind of if there is starch on them, this way they bind beautifully and they stay “puffy” on the loops. Some of the flowers are by Prima, they are also from Sharon’s store. I got the white ones and just made them look old by sponging Vintage photo on them. To make the seam between the matchbox and Design Paper disappear even more i used Ranger Distress Crackle paint and once it crackled i sponged over it again with Vintage photo (picture does not show – i did that afterwards)
Other supplies: Papers used are Kaiser Kraft “Dear Santa Collection”
Please Email Sharon at to order, including state/zip OR country.
Here is a little sneak peek what this little gift box is hosting :-) there is a handmade bracelet from me and some nice beauty items from Lancome – my favorite brand! I hope my friend will love and enjoy something else than just stamp related things.
