Did you try to catch bugs when you were a child...? thanks to a story my Dad told me about faerie babies, I would look and hope to catch faeries in matchboxes.... but I never CAUGHT one...
BUT Today I managed to catch five!
Do you want to see them....? this is a matchbox faerie.. isn't she cute... and tiny..
The idea for the soldered matchboxes came from Marie at Lost bird Studio .. thank you Marie for the inspiration and tutorial ... I of course added faeries to mine....add glitter and flowers and then soldered the glass.
then I thought Mm-mm they need a sleeve to protect them...so they really are Matchbox faeries
thank you again to Marie at
but also Lisa at
