HALLOWEEN TREAT BOX SWAP









We had a wonderful swap at the Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group, it was hosted by Melanie. The Halloween Treat Box Swap was really a fun swap, it was a PIF swap and I made my box for Terri Heinz. I really enjoyed making this box for her and filling it with wonderful things. We were to make one item for the box, I made the Marie frame, the lace french book and also the ribbon flowers. My box was so full that I could not put the top on tight. I guess next time I should fill the box first before I decorate it. Terri is such a wonderful person and it has been great getting to know her better, she also hosts Tea Cup Tuesday with Martha. She has already received her box, so I thought I would share it you. Thank you for visiting my blog today and I wish you a wonderful week. Hugs, Terri

I so adore Marie Antoinette themed things. Is the Marie Mail art group a private thing or can others join. I'm always so inspired by the amazing creations that others have made. Would love to participate. Thanks for sharing your wonderful box!
