it's about time swap

For Mary's It's about Time Swap, we were to put a package together including vintage numbers. It's funny how many numbers you'll find hidden in random vintage pieces like old letters, receipts, etc.

My partner Ele finally got her late package from me. 
This is what I put together for Ele:
I included a variety of cream colored items, music sheets, math sheets, bingo cards, vintage receipts, an old clock parts envelope, flashcards, an old envelope, trim tags, lace, candles, altered candle holders, an altered tag book, and buttons:I also made Ele a pocket organizer. I was inspired after seeing Heather at Pretty Petals' beautiful pocket organizers on her blog. See other pocket organizers I've made here.
Before I shipped off Ele's items, I packaged up all of her items in this box:
Below you can see a closer picture of all of Ele's things before I packaged them. The altered art book I made for Ele in the bottom right corner was made using a collage sheet from Jen's digital downloads.
Thank you Ele for swapping with me, and thank you, Mary, for hosting.
