Matchbox Fairy Garden

Hello hello! When I saw these Graphic 45 matchbox boxes, I knew one would eventually be a fairy garden of some sort. I love fairy gardens!

The matchbox is 3" x 5",  and with tiny feet and a handle it stands 6" tall. I used Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden - remember that gorgeous paper? I have just a little bit left these days. Perfect for small projects like this!

I can't seem to get the coloring right on this photo, but you can still see the full garden. :) Since the matchboxes are snug, I simply painted the insides a very light peach color, then distressed a bit with fine sandpaper. That way it still slides.

Thanks for visiting today! I hope you find time to get a little creative, too!
