Teeny Tiny



This is a matchbox i made for a matchbox swap on DC. I've not made one before and its just so small! I had nothing to put in there so I got making. I made the base of the inside with air dry clay pressed onto a floral textured stamp and cut bits for each corner. The roses i made with air dry clay. The little butterflies were made by making a 'mould' out of friendly plastic with a charm pressed in, then i removed the charm and made clay impressions. They're not perfect but are things ever?! Then the whole lot is painted with acrylic and has some wax rub ons and a few other bits here and there. I think i like matchboxes a lot!
