Altered Matchbox - for a Yahoo Inchie Swap

The tissue paper I used to line the box is actually the placemat from the Atlanta Cheesecake Cafe where I have lunch sometimes. (Everyone who eats there now knows to bring me back their placemats!) The tigers and balls are actually beads I bought to make earrings. My daughters who live in the Cincinnati area are (or were) fans of the Cincinnati Bengals football team. Unfortunately, the team has not been doing so well, so I never made the earrings. I like the beads much better on the box! The brass medallion that the tiger is standing on is also an item I purchased to use with beading.

This is the bottom of the box.
