Vintage matchboxes

Stocking fillers under 5£ is this week's theme at CraftBarn, so it was the right excuse to make some little treasures that I always admired on a blog of a talented girl from Poland. She is Maj, and I love every little, vintage stuff that she make.
I tried to re-create the mini matchboxes and mini mini books inside, and since I started from scratch, I have to tell you, not an easy task...Hope you like them:
Piccoli doni sotto le 5 £ è il tema di questa settimana su CraftBarn. Ne ho approfittato per creare delle mini scatoline vintage ispirate dalla bravissima Maj, che seguo da tanto tempo. All'interno un mini mini libro. Avendo tutto costruito da zero, ammetto di di averci messo un pò di tempo, ma ne è valsa la pena!
 
The minibooks inside:

Matchboxes are perfect for altering and for tucking a gift inside but I have never created a mini book. WOW, those are so beautiful Gio.
