valentine's day inspired

My friend Rachel from Alice and Elsie sent me a package a few days before Valentine's Day. I love the tiny books she sent me. She made one for Julie Collings' Tiny Book Swap (which I sadly missed).

She made another with a sweet bird theme:


Thanks, Rachel!

When I received my gift from Rachel, I was in the middle of working on one for her. I put together a petite inspiration box for her:
Rachel posted some pictures on her blog here, too.

See more petite inspiration boxes (they're matchboxes!) here.
