Victorian tussie mussies and Petite boxes

Wanted to share the sweet boxes I received from Cerri, Julie Ann, and Sarah, my partners in the petite inspiration box swap - aren't they lovely? ...and all filled to the brim with the sweetest things!
I've been busy creating Victorian tussie mussies using vintage wallpaper and vintage images, trinkets and trims - I think I will have 11 in all when I'm finished. Here's a few....

Melissa,
You have great matchbook swap partners. I saw some of those on the flickr site. I had three wonderful partners, too. I'll bet the Tussies are for "A Swap For All Seasons." Just wonderful! have always wanted to make them. I was to be in that swap but i can't get Entourage to work to get ahold of the swap host...wahhhh! I didn't know about this and it looks like a great place for swaps.

I love what you are doing! You always have something going on!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and making the nice comment.
