Yet Another Petite Inspiration Box Swap

Heather, of Speckled Egg, hosts these addictive Petite Inspiration Box Swaps. This is the third I've participated in. Each time there is a theme and what could be more fun than "Flea Market"!
These are the boxes I sent my swap partners, Rhea and Marian...I covered them in burlap and embellished with vintage seam binding and shabby flowers with vintage pearl centers....
and stuffed each one... with all the vintage flea market finds they would hold!
Stay tuned for my returns....

If anyone would like to give altering and swapping matchboxes a try, consider joining the Flickr Monthly Matchbox Swap Group.
I recently joined and they're a very friendly, welcoming group. A new theme is announced each month and trades are one on one.
Stop by and look around. Maybe I'll be swapping matchboxes with you next time around!

Hi JoAnne, I finally got involved in this petite box swap. I have mine already to send out too. I was so happy to get in on this one. I apologize for not emailing you with a tutorial. I want to still try to get that done. I was planning on a super tutorial, and I took many pictures, but after it was all done, I realized that I did not have a card in my camera!
