Dreaming of Paris

I just finished my boxes for the Speckled Egg's Petite Inspiration Box - Paris Edition swap. Here are the boxes I made for my swap partners. They are boxed up and ready to go to their new homes with my swap partners.

Last week I shared my in-progress boxes. Here they are, all ready to go.


I covered the matchboxes in vintage wallpaper that is covered in big beautiful peachy-pink roses. They happen to match the Webster's pink Bloomers trim perfectly, so I had to add some on there. I added a little glitter here and there to the wallpaper, tied on a pink tulle bow, and attached the soldered charms that I made.

But what good is a box with nothing inside? Here's a peek at some of the contents:


I wanted to keep a pink and white theme. I covered the "drawer" with vintage French text from a dictionary and a Paris magazine. I lined the drawer with a vintage handkerchief. The little "bonjour" envelope holds butterflies made from more vintage French text, and assorted ephemera. I made the tissue pattern flowers and the hand-dyed seam binding. I included a vintage millinery flower, buttons, charms, and beads. And who wouldn't love that adorable pink ballerina? I made an extra box that I'll put up for sale in the shop soon.

I hope my swap partners like what I made, and I can't wait to see what they created! I'll share photos of those boxes when I receive them.
