Vintage Dragonfly 'Things with Wings' Matchbox Swap
This is the first swap for this new swap group. Our theme was 'Things With Wings." So I chose butterflies.
I covered the top of my matchbox with matchsticks and then covered the sticks with gesso. I wanted the top to look like a white picket fence. On the 'fence,' I put a small silk flower, some die-cut leaves and two gorgeous blue butterflies. I added stickles to the flower and leaves.
The drawer pull was made with a metal butterfly bead
This photo shows the little wooden legs on the box. I covered the sides of the box with spring-green acrylic paint and stickles.
