.:: Matchbox Treasures ::. by Nezumi-chuu .:: Matchbox Treasures ::. by Nezumi-chuu
I made these as part of some christmas gifts for =syrinxfox and *evphaedrielle [and then made dupes for myself because I liked them enough -haha]

They are done over matchbooks boxes, and the ornament bases are actually from some miniature playing cards that I'd gotten as a freebie from a Dollmore order a while back.

The first one has the S.S Fisk [which is sort of an injoke between me and the Fox] - the fishes below the ship are different between our ornaments because I didn't have exactly the same fish papers in that size. The boat itself is raised up on a tile and the ornament jingles because I attached a bell.

The lower one has a crow because the Rabbit's gotten all into crows [which is also raised up]. Originally I wanted the tiny keys to be hanging out of the crow's beak, but it didn't look right so I just clipped them to the bottom with the other stuff I attached. This one also has a bell because I like the sound of it.

They are really small, so far the smallest scale thing I've done scrapbooking and papercraft wise. I'll prolly go even smaller eventually, but these were a good start I think ^^

It's gorgeous! You have crazy crafty skills. I used to do stuff like this a lot but dropped it in favor of other things but this makes me want to get back into it. ^__^

Yay! I adore my tiny matchbox with the pretty crow. It's sitting right here next to my computer and every once and a while I take it out to love on the prettiness. ^__^

^_^ I'm glad you like it still. It was one of those things I just threw together as I went along and hoped for the best. I want to make more now [not exactly ornaments, but things in matchboxes -haha]

^_^ Thankyou so much and haha, crafting is kind of contagious I think because it's so easy to get caught up in it and motivated when others are putting stuff out around you. I say go for it and do something fun =3
