I had fun making these but feel like I could have done way more with them. I tend to go light on the first round to new projects (wish I wouldn't be such a wuss about it sometimes.)
Some of my first matchboxes:

These are really cute. I like them a lot. I tend to do the same thing and go easy on the embellishments so I can totally relate to that. I bought a bunch of matchboxes to do something similar with and haven't gotten around to it yet. Thanks for the inspiration. Maybe I will finally get my butt in gear. Great job on these too, by the way. Take care and have a good one.  Smiley

These rock! I love the skeletons and it would be really cool to do a Day of the Dead themed matchbox swap at some point. Thanks for the inspiring photos.

Thank you everyone! I got the matchboxes at the dollar store and they probably took a couple minutes a piece. I tend to set up and work on many things at once. With these, I started the backgrounds and covering the labels all together at first, and then added one or two things per matchbox each time around. My system is an odd one, but it works for me. I am still learning how to work with my incredibly short attention span....
