Recently a wonderful post over on Nichola Battilana's blog, Pixie Hill inspired me to make my own little lover's memento. Nichola put together a lovely little "how to" that sprang me right into creative action. Of course my pieces are not nearly as cool as hers are, but I love them because they are personal to me.
On both of these, both inside and out, I utilized tissue tape. I found that this easily covered my matchboxes and I could alter the surface further as well.
Of course each and every little element chosen in these little parcels of love, has special personal meaning. It was fun to root through my stuff and ponder how they could relate to my life and what they could represent.
Thank you so much to Nichola for sharing her inspiration. I hope you found some as well.
