Matchbox Art......Abilene's Surprise Visitor....

I covered a small matchbox with some colour-washed paper and then added a vintage picture of a sweet girl, who I am calling Abilene, from the book The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. In the book, she is separated from her treasured china rabbit, Edward Tulane.

 Inside the matchbox, I used some foam to make a mattress and a piece of serviette paper for the sheet.

 Then I added another piece of serviette paper for the quilt and glued a small piece of lace trim to the top. Finally came the pillow and a cheeky little teddy bear who has snuggled into her bed while she is out looking for Edward.

I am sure Abilene will get a surprise when she comes home...

It won't be the same without Edward, but teddy might make her feel a little better....maybe....what do you think?
