Polar Cap Bound

Another box made for the GAS MAMMA travelling matchbox challenge. This one was inspired by a piece of white fake fur I had. This is a slightly longer and not so deep box made from a piece of blue cardstock covered with white tissue paper and Lumiere paint to give a cool feel to it. The drawer pull is an earing and the jewels along the sides are a piece of ribbon. The top of the box is decorated with a collaged tall ship and broken pieces of clear plastic beads to represent the polar ice cap ( I put the beads in a plastic bag and hit them with a hammer). Inside the box is a polar bear cut out of the fake fur fabric. I like to think that he hiding in the water under the ship. I hope you like this altered matchbox.
