I was inspired by this post by Knickertwist to do two things.  First, I joined the Facebook group she mentioned, called Art Abandonment, which is for people who make art and leave it in public places for random strangers to find.  Second, I made this series of altered matchboxes to abandon.

Each matchbox is covered with book pages (I got a book on clearance for a dollar!), and there is a paper heart glued to the inside.  I sewed fabric collages for the tops (which I glued to the matchboxes), and I made stuffed collaged hearts for the inside.  Each heart asks, "got art?" 

Below you can see how I packaged them before leaving them around town.  The tag behind the "Free Art" card tells about the facebook group and gives an email address to report the find.

So far no one has send an email to say that they found a matchbox.  I hope that doesn't mean they all ended up in the garbage somewhere!
