upcycled packaging for earrings

I made some earrings for a friend recently and wanted to package them in an eco-friendly way for her birthday which is in a few days. So I glued some nice paper to a small matchbox and lined it with pieces of felt from my fabric stash.

The earrings in the box are the pink ones that I showed you in this post.

Meanwhile I've listed another pair of earrings made from vintage green beads in the Crafty Green Poet Etsy shop

I was looking at an almost-empty matchbox yesterday, and was wondering what next use I could give it. I am definitely not a collector. Minimalist in the extreme, but have always loved little boxes. Yours is very cute.
