Altered Matchbox

Have you ever altered a matchbox? An ordinary, everyday matchbox can be transformed into such a cute little gift box! I took part in a swap that asked us to use only black and white, and so I covered this one in designer paper and bling and added a little ribbon handle with some eyelets. I filled the box with black and white scrappy materials. Now I have to give it away! How sad!

If you have never altered a matchbox before, I made a tutorial about it for you on Let me know if you make one!

I really like what you've done with the matchbox Susan. I've thought about covering them as part of an advent calendar but not as an individual project. TFS!
