Match box Shrine challenge

Hello again bloggers. Hope you are all well!

So please find below the pictures of my contribution to the match box shrine swap.
My theme from my swappie was "Halloween but NO SPIDERS please"

The paper inside is a free printable. ( )
The skull is a ice cube mould with melted embossing power poured in. The wing is cut with a sizzix die from an old drinks can. The webbed material is a old scrap of sinamay from my millinery ( hat making).

I covered the match box in old copy paper which was inked and embossed with Tim Holtz embossing folder, I can't remember which one, Halloween themed. The front of the box I cut out to look like a coffin (spooky!) Then I put perspex underneth.
Hope you'll like, comments are welcome.
I'll have a you tube video up, as soon as I can figure out how to edit a video with no softwear!
Happy crafting!


  1. This is a great take on the halloween theme. Love the skull - brilliant. Love the idea of cutting a coffin shape into the top - inspired. Thanks for sharing your swap.

  2. As the recipient, can I just say WOW and WOW some more - it is really fun and I love it - thank you so much. AND the best bit? I went onto the blog you got the paper from (freubels freebies), clicked to follow her blog - and became her 100th blog follower and have been given one of her collage sheets as a prize!
