Here's my latest matchbox ornament, with a big, glittery bumblebee front and center!
I painted the inside box moss green (big surprise, there!), then covered the outside slider with green & white decorative paper, highlighted with glitter, of course.
Next, I glued a velvet leaf on top, then added a glass glittered bumblebee. I glued a silk ribbon on the top as a hanger and filled it's little drawer with the most silky, gorgeous stuff, called Angelina. It's a wispy fiber that is used in fabrics...or in anything woven that needs some shine. I got it from my glitter company, who also makes it. Feels like bedding for an angel! Sooooo soft.I glued a piece of white card stock on the back ( it's sort of a base) and stamped "For:" so the giver can write the givee's name or a sweet sentiment. Perfect for a single piece of chocolate! Or, better yet...something REALLY SHINEY!!!! Oooooh!
