Amor es Eterno; a Matchbox Shrine

It's been far too long since I spent some quality time with my trusty exacto knife and lots of glue. Craftster is currently holding a papercraft challenge with the theme 'Valentine's themed Matchbox Shrine'. Shrine? I couldn't resist.

I hatched an idea, but had no matchboxes large enough to house it. I made my own matchbox using some card stock and then created this little shrine:

The overlying theme of the shrine is that love endures even after death. The inside of the shrine houses a skelly armed heart clutching a message in a bottle...

This wee shrine houses a secret however. Did you notice the small black tab to the right of the heart? No?

Behind this hidden door is a portrait of a happy, muchly deceased, couple.
