petite inspiration box swap from erica

Erica from Zunky Chic made this petite inspiration box for me. I love the vintage wallpaper, frayed lace roses, and handmade soldered charm:
Erica lined the box with a pink hanky,
and in my box, Erica included a small "Bonjour" envelope (with Paris/French themed ephemera including little butterflies made from French text and French postage stamps), seam binding, handmade flowers made from tissue, a Marie tag, millinery, buttons, pearls, an Eiffel tower charm, and a pink ballerina:The Eiffel tower charm:Here are some pictures Erica took of the boxes (the other box is for our other partner Valarie). (You can visit Erica's blog here and read more about the boxes she made for us).
Thank you, Erica!
