When I was thinking of ideas for my matchbox I started thinking about the different kinds of love there are. I did a search online, but I didn’t really like the different kinds of love I found on there. So I made up my own and named the group ‘Lovekinds’.
There are Four Lovekinds:
Egolove - Love for Yourself
Bloodlove - Love for Family
Kindredlove - Love for Friends
Eternallove - Love for Significant Others
I used two matchboxes. The outer one is very simple. It reminds me of an old hard cover book. It’s sturdy and doesn’t give away much details.
When you open it up there is another, smaller matchbox inside. When you take out the smaller matchbox you can see an anatomical heart in the background.
The Inner Box is small but it holds much love. On the front displayed is the key to the heart.
Inside the inner box are four small cards.
On the fronts of each card is an illustration of each Lovekind
On the backs of each card tells the Lovekind.
Oh and whats this? A ribbon coming for the bottom of the box? Let’s pull on it and see what it does.
The supprise is that the Inner Box has a false bottom.
Apperently this box belonged to a woman in love with a man named Jack. She kept momentos of the times they spent together.
The ticket to the carnival he took her on their first date, the music they danced to on their second, the ribbon from her hair the day he asked her to marry him, a piece of lace from her wedding dress, and a button from his sleeve cuff on the night of their honeymoon.
