An ATC and some Inchies

As part of my swap with Jen I made an ATC using a paper serviette glued to some backing paper and card. I added a line of acrylic to the edges, a couple of stickers and a little piece of ripped silk.

I also had a go at making an inchie book for both of us, I so loved the one Julia sent me I just couldn't resist trying it out myself. I added scraps and beads to the card squares.


as an after thought I altered a matchbox to keep my set in!

ooo SO lovely M!
Super how versatile your little white beads are, they made perfect Edelweiss centers for your August dress and they add that certain something to these precious pieces as well!
Happy Thursday dear one!

Those ATCs and inchies can become addictive. Placing them in a matchbox is a fabulous idea.

Sorry I missed the post yesterday about what Jen sent you. Really lovely pieces you got, including that very dimensional ATC.
