little halloween treasures


so these are the decorated matchboxes that i already posted - and now i want to show you the fun little items that i placed inside.  i really like the concept of heather's series of "petite box swaps" - fun to make and fun to receive; and the tiny little treasures inside are wonderful to use for display or crafting.
                  



i spray painted the inner boxes black and then lined them with a simple piece of halloween fabric that can be used for crafting; and also provides a little cushioning for the contents. this box is for stephanie; her preference was to stick to the black and white theme with just a few touches of orange.


and this little box goes to alison, who likes touches of orange, purple, or green with her black and white halloween theme.



for alison...just the contents...



and a close-up:)



and then for stephanie...



and a blurry close-up:) 


now i'm working on a large scale vintage halloween swap with a lovely blogger from missouri...she was kind enough to respond to my plea for a partner, that i posted back in august:)  hayley from nesting notions is a vintage lover also...you'll find so many wonderful photos on her blog!  i'm going to link to one of her halloween posts from 2009 - isn't it wonderful?!?  a girl after my own heart, for sure...

happy, happy monday to you all:)

These boxes are filled and decorated for Halloween fun. Great job.. When I saw the witches on the broom sticks they remined me of some my husband made years ago. ..they are just painted black but you gave me the idea to add some glitter and give them to the grandkids as a meno of their grandpa who died from cancer.. Thanks for sharing these cute things
