CS Designs "Geisha" Matchboxes

March 13th 2011
I wanted to share my little decorated matchboxes with you. These have been covered with Japanese papers which were actually purchased in Japan!!! They have the most beautiful papers there - very hard to resist!
I have covered both pieces of the matchbox and have tied fibres around them decorated with the little Geisha images and some cute little colour co-ordinated beads. Inside the boxes you will see I have repeated the Geisha image and cut out the 'head' and have also added 3 coins tied with ribbon for 'good luck'.

Here are the little boxes closed:


And pictures showing the inside of the matchboxes! They are very easy to decorate but LOL now I have quite a few matches without boxes!

Absolutely Beautiful! My heart is heavy just thinking about the people in Japan today. Such a rich and beautiful place. It is amazing to see their spirit in this time of disaster. It shows in there art.
