I couldn't find any previous matchbox shrine swaps thru the search I just did so will assume this would be number 1.

As Katxenas matchbox supply swap is in sign up stages right now, I thought it would be a great time to start the promised thread for matchbox shrines.  I will start signups after the majority of people have sent for the matchbox supply swap (probly late Feb early march) in case you're waiting for new inspirational goodies Grin  I'm thinking a quick crafting time with 1 or 2 partners whichever each swapper would like. 

The matchboxes will be decorated inside and out and you can communicate with your partner(s) as to what theme (if any) to do.  Some ideas are: mexicana, famous artists/paintings, inspirational (hope, joy etc), one word, one colour, animals......

This should extend our fun with our new matchbox supplies for those of us in the supply swap, although everyone is welcome!!!

I think this sounds like a lot of fun, but I'm a little bit swapped out right now.  I'm not sure I'll have space to participate!

I know its getting harder and harder to plan my swapping schedule (my feeble attempt at some kind of organization Cheesy)  every time a space frees up something else comes along to fill it.  This one should be fun and quick like the supply swap.  If only we could count on the mail system.....

hello???  I thought we'd get a few more people from the matchbox supply swap for this one.  Or other tiny-friendly crafters, who doesn't need a little matchbox shrine in their pocket/bag??

Some examples:

http://www.art-e-zine.co.uk/matchbx.htm

These would be made from a tiny matchbox (sewknitter has generously posted a link to a template if you want to make your own-look on the current matchbox supply thread)  Decorate the inside and outside with anything your heart desires.

Lots of people don't check the new swap theme ideas. I think you should go ahead with it. I'm pretty sure there will be lots of interest.  Smiley

I can't remember -- did you post about it in the discussion thread for the fill-a-matchbox swap?  There was a lot of interest in it there.

I'm thinking starting sign-ups on Saturday, March 3 - 7; with sendouts by the 16th.  Simple one for one with an option to have 2 partners.

This will have a quick crafting time cause first matchboxes are so tiny and personally if I have a far away deadline my procrastination totally kicks into high gear Smiley

gonna go see if I can lure any of the tiny matchbox swappers this way...

the little guys, exact measurements seem to differ on what country you're in.  Sewknitter posted a template to make your own matchbox and cover -http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=152721.msg1521782#msg1521782 

But of course if you have to go to the store Smiley

It's so great to see Kaos poking herself with a stick for once!  Smiley

Edited to add:  Oh wait.  Maybe I shouldn't be taking such pleasure out of the stick poking.  That's really not very nice of me.

I had planned to start signups if there was more interest in doing this, but right now I'm having energy issues and with only a few of us I think it best just to wait for goat goddess's small shrine swap.  Hope thats ok with you, gonna go nap now Smiley
