Now That's A Bird of A Different Color!

My partner, Michele, stressed birds and bling. Our challenge for the current matchbox swap was to create something special for our partner based on their list of likes.
Sneak peek at the corner of the box...a bit of bling there..

Is this bird blingy enough?

The back of the box needs to be blingy & sparkly too.

Inside I tucked all kinds of fun bird items including a crochet peacock, German scrap birds, an old wooden bird that was a recent estate sale find and that piece of fabric everything is displayed on is covered with hens!

Sign-ups are open for our next swap, A Midsummer Night's Dream.
This could lead to some pretty amazing matchboxes.....
