This is another matchbox I altered for a one to one trade with a sewing theme and now I know it's been received I can post it here.
I must own up to getting inspiration for this box from the very talented Trudy - who I don't think has a blog, but you see a photo of her matchbox here.
The dress form (from Character Constructions) was rubber stamped (with Dew Drop Brilliance ink) onto Shrink Plastic and stuck onto the box with E6000 adhesive.
I covered the outside and inside of the box with old dress pattern tissue paper (adhered with Liquitex matte medium) and did a bit of rubber stamping over the top.
The drawer pull is a little bit of Tim Holtz tape measure attached with an eyelet.
Inside is a small assortment of sewing bits and pieces.
The mannequin was moulded from air dry clay from the 'Mini Torso Set XXLge' by Krafty Lady. Once dried, I covered it with Tim Holtz tissue tape and attached some finishing ribbon and a button.
I'm looking forward to receiving a matchbox from my swap partner Jan who makes the most amazing altered matchboxes!
