I love painting matchboxes and filling them up with little things that go with the theme of the box. Here are some of my favorite matchboxes that I have made. Not everything in the matchboxes are handmade though. Some of the stickers are handmade, I made them by printing out my doodles on labels and cutting them out. The stamps are handmade and so are the felt objects and the wire bird nest.

I paint them with acrylic paint. The matchbox template I found online here: http://blog.swap-bot.com/rachels-matchbox-template/





Here are some more:



This one is probably my favorite!
