This is my first go at making a decorated matchbox. It's travel themed, as you can see.




It's got some random things in it (who hasn't packed silly random things to take on holiday before?) as well as a mini passport with tissue paper pages and sewn binding, and a couple of 'polaroid' snapshots. They are some real photos of mine made to look like polaroids.



I found a place that sells matchbox blanks, so I was able to use a nice clean white box, without having to make one from scratch.

It's just construction paper. 210gsm, so it was the perfect weight for it. I did do some shading on them with pencil too, to make it look a bit more beaten up.

Also, these are the stickers I used.
