|Top of matchbox|
Penny at The Hen House and The Linen Shelf is hosting a 12 Days of Christmas altered matchbox swap and I chose to do 3 French Hens.
The outside of the box is covered with strips of vintage style Christmas paper, vintage book pages, music and hand written letters. I then gesso'd them to mute the strong colours.

Inside the box is lined with vintage French text, and I added a re-sized French postcard of 3 young French girls (from The Graphics Fairy). I gave each of them a tiny hair sparkle - it will be Christmas after all!
|All 12 matchboxes|
Each drawer was given a Tim Holtz handle with thread tied round.
Finally I printed off from my computer the '3 French Hens' title, using a vintage French style font.
I enjoyed taking part in this swap and I'm looking forward to getting all 12 days back!
Thank you, Penny!
