One of the local stamp shops is offering a program where they are giving out matchbox "treasure box" kits. You can take a kit (or 2), decorate it however you like, put a 'treasure' inside & return it to the shop. Then next month all of the boxes will be put up for sale for $5 each, with the monies going to the Breast Health Fund at Pomona Valley Hospital.
I'm not a "stamper", but one of my friends that is showed me the flyer about the program. I decided that I could do a really mini quilt to decorate a box with! My little Flying Geese paper pieced quiltlet is approx 2" X 3-1/2". I used Fray Stop on the edges & glued it to the box with an acid-free glue stick. I covered the inside with some pink ribbon fabric. For the 'treasure' I made a pink & turquoise glass bead bracelet with a butterfly charm. I also put a few 3D stickers in too.
It was fun - after the paper-piecing starting frustration (since I haven't PP'd for a couple months)!! I'm going to turn it in today & get another kit to do. One little way to help out...
:D
I don't understand why the photos are so dark...and it won't let me edit them. If you click on "download" under the pics, you can see them much better....

Ahhh shucks! :oops: Thanks everyone.
We all have been affected by breast cancer in some way, and since it seems the biggest fund raisers are run/walks & that's not something I do much, I was thrilled to find this way to help. :D

Beautiful, Sue, as I knew they would be. Sure am going to tell my friend that is big in the cancer walks and organization about these. Maybe we can get them to do something like that here so that I can participate in that way. I can't walk anymore either.
