VALENTINE TRINKET BOXES I MADE FOR MY ETSY SHOP





I had so much fun making the match boxes, that I decided to make a couple of Valentine Trinket Boxes, these were really fun to make. They are covered in pink ledger paper, have shells, mother of pearl heart, dresden wings, vintage velvet leaves, ribbons and flowers with rhinestones. I will be listing these in my Etsy shop.

Gorgeous! They remind me of the antique sailors' Valentines all done up with shells. There are some contemporary examples in the current issue of Cloth Paper Scissors. Well done Terri! Corinne xo
