Cocoa org... Sounds delicious.

I've used tacky glue on a matchbox. It depends on the paper, but if you don't use a really thin coating, it can blister just a little bit, but sometimes it shrinks back as it dries. Just have some fun and do some experimenting, I say Smiley

Has anyone tried tacky glue when covering their matchboxes with paper or fabric?

I've been doing tons of experimenting (I think I now have at least one bottle of every glue being made) and for me, tacky glue works great with cotton fabrics, but mod-podge works better with paper.

XD My brother is evil. When he left and I walked back into my bedroom, I found a Monster import sticker on the top of one of my matchboxes LOL.
Me: Damn it Kyle!!! *pulls sticker off* Well, at least he picked the box with no decorations or anything on top of it yet xD *looks at back of sticker* ...He stuck it to his jeans first. No wonder it came off so easily Cheesy

 I found the 10 pack of 32 count for $0.99 at the grocery store and yes, they look tiny. I think I am going to try decorating one tonight and then cross my fingers to see if it fits what my partner likes.  If not, I have a sister who is having a birthday soon and I can put a necklace in it for her.

ha! Thank you. I'm just giddy with sorting teeny tiny things. Can't wait to see which ones match up with my partners-to-be.

(oh yeah, I'm greedy enough to sign up for two matchbox swaps)

Hii all!!! Just wanted to pop in real fast and say hey and that I'll be MIA from Sunday the 27th to Saturday the 2nd, maybe Sunday the 3rd. I'll be out of the country and my blackberry is lacking an international plan. Sad FML, I need to get up in an hour so I can leave at 4:45 for my 7am flight Cry I hate flying.

I can't wait for partners!! Cheesy
