Here is the first of the altered match boxes I made. The idea was really taken from Craft Stamper magazine. As I'm sure you know they do a reader swap in each issue and the theme for this was altered matchboxes using the colours duck egg blue, brown and gold.
Items I used:
Magnolia Doohickey vintage tag die,
Longing Tilda rubber stamp,
Backing paper from papermania.
Also scrap of lace, a paper rose and leaf, a gem stone and fibers.
Well this was my attempt and I was pleased with the results till I re-read the instructions that is! Any standard sized matchbox was acceptable. Well I didnt notice that in my rush to get started!!! I just made a machbox! LOL so I had to start again.....
