I organised a Matchbox Mingle for KCUK and of course, as usual, I was last minute with mine… only sent it yesterday but thankfully it has arrived today and the deadline is Easter Sunday, so I’m on time :-D

I made my matchbox with the WAMK Envelope board (see You Tube for lots of ideas) and opted for the larger one, simply because I wanted to include one of those little concertinas I made for the Faux Batik class and I wanted to put it IN the box.

Here are the front and back of the box:-


And here’s the new front I made for the concertina book.


Here’s a reminder of what the inside looks like.


I’m entering these into the Anything Goes challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More.

I’ve managed to spend some time bloghopping this week, catching up with a lot of you who I have SO missed!  Lovely to chat with some of you and thank you all for your inspiration.

Love the colours Cath and the idea for the mingle. Maybe one day I'll get back to my rubber stamping, although I've just bought more fabric!!! xxx
