Another little project...

I only found four of these little metal findings in my stash of old jewelry parts, but they seemed like perfect little decorative matchbox covers. This was the prototype, just made from whatever I had on hand, and I'm not yet happy with the matches. Hopefully I can get the next batch looking more realistic.
 The matches are glued in the box, but the box itself can be opened and shut just like a real matchbox.


  1. wonderful idea!!! Why don't you snip a white cleaning brush and use one of the bristle's for the match....just dip the end in a little drop of red acrylic paint and let it dry completely. You then (if you want) can touch the tip of the match with some white paint on the end of a should look like a strike anywhere match. I love the case!!

  2. I love the little case too - an excellent idea.
