I was just recently admiring these tiny books http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=402443.0 and planning to make my own. When I went to find some light cardboard to use, I came up empty handed. So my brain churned up this Idea for me to make instead. A book made from a vintage matchbook. I call it the matchbooklet.


I love how it turned out! I made another one from scratch, as in no matchbook just using thin packaging cardboard, and with more pages that also turned out cool.(will post later)
I have a tutorial on my blog for the matchbooklet if you are interested.

I am new to the paper craft boards, I like it here, It is very inspiring to see all the art made from paper!
Thanks,
Jessica

That's a great use for those matchbooks once the matches have been used up. I have a few souvenir ones hoarded that I couldn't bear to throw away that would be perfect!

Hi everyone, I just posted my template on my blog, so that you can make your very own matchbooklet without a Vintage Matchbook!
I used scrap paper and a empty six pack carton.
