Welcome to The Pride's Mother's Day Blog Hop! I hope you're enjoying all the projects you've seen so far. You should've prowled on over to my den from Suzie's den
, but if you didn't, please start out at our Mama Elsa's den, here
. As you know by now, this month's challenge was to alter a box for a Mother's Day present. Well, I didn't really know what I was gonna do until I was browsing YT the other night and stopped by RoxyBee04's channel
. I saw an entry she got from Letty (fromscrapstocrafts
) for her current giveaway and I knew I wanted to make THAT box. Thanks for the inspiration Letty! So here's my altered matchbox. As you'll see in the last picture, I created three little boxes, adhered them together, then made the cover for all three. I'm not sure why the color of the paper looks red in two of the pictures, but the paper is actually pink. Here's the view from the top:

So what do you think? I'm giving this box to my mom for Mother's Day because she really LOVES that candy! I can't believe I actually figured out the dimensions and measurements for this matchbox to fit the candy, because I'm really bad at math! Hahaha! Anyway, thanks for stopping by and now it's time to pounce on over to Margaret's den here
. I hope you'll leave me a comment as I love to read what you all have to say. Have a great weekend and until next time, take care!
Right on!!! This is an awesome creation and filled with one of my favorite things!! I love it, so pretty!ReplyDelete
