Matchbox announcments...

When I saw these cute little baby announcements that were made from matchboxes, I had to give it a try! These are mini ones that you could easily slip into an envelope with a photo of the new baby. Aren't they so cute? These were in the B is for Baby book by Suzonne Stirling.

In honor of our very own Cathy getting married this weekend, I thought I'd try a wedding announcement match box instead. I searched around my home and found a larger matchbox. (We didn't have any small ones.) I covered it with paper, stickers, rub ons and resin pieces by Melissa Frances.

In the inside, I quickly painted the box with white paint letting some of the box show through for a worn, vintage sort of a look. Lastly I used a Melissa Frances sticker, attached it to my printer paper and ran it through the printer to add the wedding couple's information. Then it was attached inside the box.This would be a fun little gift for someone, or an announcement for a special someone coming to your wedding, or just a beautiful trinket box to hold memoirs from your wedding!

Congratulations to Cathy and we wish you all the best this weekend with your wedding!
