Mini Marvel Matchbox Swap

Over on a FB group I was invited to named mini marvels there is a matchbox swap going on so I decided to join in. I've constructed everything from scratch using chipboard and patterned papers. Above is the inside of the matchbox.

Then I made a mini book to go inside, but I'm not showing the contents yet as I want it to be a surprise for my swap partner.

Tied a piece of ribbon around the finished book to keep it together.

Made the outside sleeve and obviously made sure the contents fitted inside - lol.

And finally this is the matchbox and contents all closed up and ready to be swapped.

Paula has just started a new monthly challenge, purposely with about 3 rules, no DT, no prizes, no top 3 etc, but there is a theme, and it just happens to be take flight.
