My Treasure Box

When I saw that the challenge over at SALT this week was to use this scripture verse from Matthew, I knew I wanted to participate in some way. It's always been a favorite of mine. When I first started cardmaking, I put this verse on everything!
I created this little treasure box from a matchbox I altered (the matches were wooden, a little larger in size). I had a sticker of this verse, so that was easy enough. Now what to put inside?Well, the perfect thing: Scripture verse cards! Found them sitting in a draw with a rubber band around them and knew this would be perfect for my treasure box!
Over the years, I think I've read this verse many different ways. But I think what I've enclosed in this box best illustrates what my treasure is and where my heart is.
