My First Swap

When I saw the invitation to join Heather's Petite Inspiration Valentine Box swap at the Speckled Egg my heart skipped a beat! What fun! I had never participated in a swap before and this seemed like a fun one to jump in on.
Here is a pic of the boxes I sent to Cheryl, LiLi and Pamela. My swap partners are so sweet and talented. It was such a joy to be able to share this fun experience with them.

I know it is hard to see, but I used Stickles on the image to highlight some of the details. I had some crepe paper on hand which I ruffled on my sewing machine. It was tricky at first but once I got it going it was kind of fun! I lined the inside of the boxes with the same pink toile paper on the outside.
Vintage Valentine goodies!

The Imperial Sweets card is a reproduction ~ I love its vintage vibe just the same.

Some millinery, trim and buttons can be just the thing don't you think?

See what looks like a piece of candy on the left? I thought it would be fun to package some red eyelets in a vintage style fabric candy wrapper style. Wouldn't it be fun to make a candy jar full of small treasures wrapped like that for a crafty friend?

I will be posting the dreamy swaps I received shortly! Happy crafting Sugah!
