A Rose Matchbox







I put this small matchbox together while I was making the larger one for my sister.  It has the same script scrapbook paper on the outside and lining the inside.  As I was going through my collage assortment, I came across this tiny picture of a woman holding a bouquet of roses - perfect size for the top of the little box.  I had a small piece of the antique lace left over, so folded it up, found an old leaf earring in my box of junk jewelery, removed the wire and tied brown ribbon through the hole, found a small fabric flower, then laid them all inside the box.  Perfect fit and perfect elements to go with the picture.  Added a small brass rose to the top and all was well with the world.
