Marie style match box

I have found that repurposed match boxes are the in thing, they are used in many on line swaps, and to decorate with. This is my version. I used vintage lace and ribbon. I ruched the ribbon on the sides of the box and used a tiny metal frame for the picture of Marie Antoinette. I crafted the tiny flowers from silk ribbon, added bling by the way of rhinestones. The tiny box by the side doesn't come with.
You can get a good look at the Marie pic here and a close up of the flowers and the trim on the edge of the box. This is a beauty and would be a great keepsake box or set it on your vanity, also a fabulous gift for a close friend.
