Tea caddy/cigar box swap sent spoiler alert....

Well yesterday I posted off my cigar/teacaddy box back to school swap to my swap partner in Canada so I thought I would show and tell what I created and sent Sandi.I really enjoyed creating this one and actually didn't want to send this one off as I so love the image and just the way it turned out....
I used a mixture of 7 Gypsies/Graphic 45 papers to decorate it,
Now what's inside the box are these:
3 tiny vials of german glitter glass
4 different sprays of flowers
1 pack of buttons
1 pack of collections pins
2 different white laces
hidden under the wadding is a container of assorted glass beads
A packet of mixture ephemera (book pages, vintage tickets, playing cards, flashcards, valentines day cards etc)
Collections tile prints
Collections 6x6 designer paper in Sepia
Heidi bling strips
2 Prima stamps
A Jenny B framed rubon
A package of white German scrap trim
and a little sweet sachet to make it smell all nice

Thanks Tabitha for hosting the swap......

PS made my first christmas matchbox for the big swap hoping to get at least two more done tonight, but now I have to go and get Max ready for his Prep meet his teachers session....
