Bubbly Funk Friday Stuff.......

Can you believe that I made this covered matchbox in a matters of hours.....I had the idea the day before and bought a large matchbox from the corner shop, then in between the school run and two hospital appointments I covered it painted it and did the finishing bits and it was done by 4pm.

Apart from the acrylic paints, background stamp and brown jute everything came in the July Kit. Oh and an empty cereal box for the larger shapes..........thnx kids!

I have seen these done in Christmas papers and think they would make wonderful gifts for someone who has a roaring log fire.......warning if posting overseas you may have to remove the matches first!! lol!! Watch out............boom!!

The reverse side is not covered in paper so you can still strike a light, if however you wanted to make one as a gift box then cover both sides.

(I'm thinking I love these so much I might whip up a batch full... a bit like baking cakes!! But if my family do that handmade Xmas pressie challenge again I'm going to have to get cracking on with it!!)

I used my newest Fiskars punch for this layout and one of my all time favourite photos of Granny and Mum. The extras added were the music sheet, some chalk ink and shimmer mist. A small amount of bling and a couple of brads. The saying is from a seperate K&Co sheet and seems a perfect match...but then what else would you expect from K&CO...I love that I get to use up my old stuff too!

Next weeks project is nearly finished but having used about 15 metres of lace, I have dried out the local supplies and may have to shorten the project!!

I guess you'll just have to wait and fact that makes two us because I haven't got a clue how this one is going to end!!

ps:This kit is still available from Bubbly Funk starting from £10.00 and the colours are perfect for Xmas presents for Mothers, Mother in Laws and Grandmothers!!

Love and log fires

Your matchbox is wonderful, love the plums and greens.

Gorgeous vintage style and look to your layout - the photo is a real treasure!

Karen said...

Oh Ruth....I adore what you have done with the matchbox. Blow using it for matches would be lovely as a present in itself perhaps with a little gift inside.

Your layout is superb as always. I love your use of the sheet music and its a beautiful photograph.
