Got Worries, Dreams or Wishes….

Apr 23, 2008

At the moment, I seem to have all of the above so I created this little box mainly to keep my hands busy and to place the above mentioned in to let them fall as they may. I have a wish/dream that is so close to coming true it causes me great worry but in the end if all goes well it will be incredible to have reached a goal I have had for the past few years. If it doesn’t happen well I am not giving up and will go to plan B.

A little place to store those not so little worries, dreams and wishes.

Here is a little tutorial on recreating this little box in case you have a few worries, dreams or wishes you need to store away for awhile.

Small Matchbox (2″ x 1.5″ x .5″)
2 – Patterned Papers or 1 – Double Sided
Seam Binding
Jewelers Tag

Martha Stewart Starburst Punch
ColorBox Fluid Chalk Ink (Chestnut Roan)
Strong Adhesive


  1. Cut a strip of Patterned Paper to 2″ x 4.5″, ink edges using Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk Ink
  2. Wrap strip of Patterned Paper around Match Box and adhere using a Strong Adhesive
  3. Ink outer edges and the sides of drawer portion of the Match Box using Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk Ink
  4. Using the Starburst Punch, punch out Starburst from Patterned Paper and adhere to center/left top portion of the Match Box
  5. Wrap Seam Binding around the Match Box and tie a bow
  6. Place a small bunch of Vintage Flowers under bow
  7. Tie Jewelers Tag to center of Bow
  8. Open Match Box and fill with your worries, dreams and wishes

    I visit your blog frequently to see all of the beautiful things you create, but never leave a comment. Isn’t that silly? I feel compelled to leave one this time to let you know that I hope your wish comes true! You’re incredibly talented, and I think there are no limits to where that can take you!
