Can I ask a stupid question? I can? Good.
My matchbox claims to be a 45 matchbox. Now I know this is bigger than the suggested amount... but. Measurement wise its only 5.5x3.5x1.5cm. How much bigger than everyone elses box is this, and do you think its close enough Ill get away with it?
Mine is 2.5X1.75X.5.  So yours is over twice as big as mine..Is mine too small?

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

If that's in centimeters suereal, then it's too small! Did you use the printout from swapbot? Krafty_Karasu says that if you print it to size on the paper it's too small (I think... I'm not sure about printers and such).

lmao, thanks everyone. Mine is a standard NZ Beehive matchbox so I wasnt sure. I am giggling at the conversions though, sorry guys, I should have measured it in inches  Cheesy Heck, imagine how huge our matches would be if it was only a box of 45 with my measurements in inches!  Shocked

Im coming up with way too many ideas for my partners. I thought I had them both sorted, then we chatted some more and now I just want to make more!!!  Grin

I'm checking in...this weekend was not a good one for me- I lost my 20 year old kitty.  It was very rough.   Cry  I hope to get started this week, crafting does take me to a better place.   Smiley  I have found lots of lovely beauties to put in my boxes, tho!

20 years old? Amazing!  So sorry to hear about your loss.  It is so hard to loose a pet

I cry when my hamsters die, and they only age up to 2/3 years, I can't imagine what it must be like to lose a pet you've had for so long. I'm so sorry for you.


I've been decorating the matchbox for Milady, I like where it is going so far.
