Suereal, you are delightfully unique.

Hiya ladies and gents!
A couple of people have asked about rules regarding incorporating the matchbox into something else.
As long as there is a matchbox in there somewhere and a portion of it is visible or accessible, you're good to go. I will say the purpose of a matchbox swap is to keep things small, so if you're stashing a matchbox in a
milk carton, reign it in!  Cheesy

Even though I am swamped with all sorts of stuff (many of which are sapping my brain power), I've come up with an idea.

It involves a craft technique I've never ever even attempted, but hey, full steam ahead.

Of course, that might be my sapped brain talking.

Agreed! It's ok to add some business to the sides or back, but let's all plan on having a tiny little marvel when we're done. Part of the fun is the challenge of keeping it matchbox size (or thereabouts). You know you can do it!

I'm intrigued!

My forest is full of wicked things so getting inspiration will not be an issue...making it tiny will be the challenge, but I am up for it...if only I could find my much needed reading glasses to see... Cheesy

So it's okay to stash a milk carton in a matchbox?  Just asking... Wink
