This is the box I created for the swap:
It has so many of my favorites!!! Pink. Vintage lace. (Oh, how I love that lace!!! And I had *Just* enough to make it all the way around the top of the box!!) Rhinestones. A fan. Fur!! A bird. Swirls. Distressing...
Here's a close up of the fan...
Actually, I made a mistake. I forgot the dimensions of the box we were to be using and had to call Matt when I was out shopping. Um, and I somehow got it in my head that we were supposed to use something 8" wide and 6" tall! Oops. I think this box was 7.5"x7.5".... But that's ok, I got to spoil Tammy!
Tammy and I exchanged emails and I also read her blog. Many posts in her blog mentioned her being a fabric fanatic, so I included lots of different fabrics!! I wasn't really sure what her tastes were, so some of them were just plain fun fabrics, and then, this swap was supposed to be about giving from the heart, so I also included fabrics I would love to work with (if I knew how to sew!!).
I also found lots of embellies for her to play with, including a valentine's day flocking set! The box was unique because it came with a cool little tray in the top with dividers, so I had fun putting everything in its place :) But I forgot to take a picture of that and pictures of the sweet vintage apron I found for her- it was sheer white with tiny red flocked hearts!!!- and some of the other things, but here's some of what was in the box.
I hope that Tammy liked my Valentine's Day box and all the things inside! I had such a wonderful time making it and shopping for treats to put inside- Swapping is so much fun!!
