I needed to alter a matchbox for someone, and fresh off the Tiny Houses swap, I decided to do another little house.

This was made using a large matchbox (because we use the long matches to light the wood fire), heavy construction paper/card, PVA glue, a black pen and a wee bit of polyfil for the smoke.





I added a floor to the inside box and covered the inside with some decorative origami paper I had, to simulate wallpaper. A bit of ribbon stuck to the bottom as a tab lets you pull the box out, since you can't push it out anymore.

I love the polyfil smoke. Great detail. (and I bet a Polly Pocket would love to live in there).
