Flea Market Matchbox Swap

I'm participating in the Speckled Egg's Petite Inspiration Box - Flea Market Edition swap. Here are the boxes I made for my swap partners:

I covered each box with vintage sewing pattern instructions, then added vintage lace trims, a canvas tag, and crochet flower.

The real treasure is inside the box! I filled it with flea market finds - vintage chenille fabric, a crochet doily, more trim, old buttons, beads, and jewelry bits.

And since I couldn't stop at just two boxes, I made a couple more before I decided what I would make for the swap. This box is covered in old dictionary paper. I used the packing tape transfer technique to add an image of a woman and two boys. Old lace trim and some natural elements finish it off.

This last box is covered in an old magazine advertisement. I used old trim of pink flowers for the edging and tied on a little bouquet of flowers. Very simple, but trés chic!
