I love decorating matchboxes and was hoping to see some fun matchbox swaps when I returned from a long break. I haven't seen any so I thought I would create one and see if there is any interest. If I find there is I will continue so we can get our matchbox fix. I've hosted alot of these with different themes but I think for this one it will be similar to a swap I hosted a few years ago:
A SIMPLE MATCHBOX SWAP
32 count matchbox
This will be a simple and easy matchbox swap. This is for those who are new to decorating matchboxes and for those who are old pros. Do keep in mind this is a low expectation swap. If you receive a decorated and filled matchbox they deserve a 5 no matter how it is decorated. With that in mind do put a little effort into making it. Add some embellishments to it - after all it is supposed to be 'decorated' and fill it with anything you like. Some examples include: buttons, beads, brads, eyelets, ribbon, fiber, confetti, mini erasers, anything that will fit inside.
1 partner ~ 1 decorated and filled matchbox (senders choice)
Be sure to include a note with your swap-bot name and the name of the swap otherwise you can't be rated by your partner.
This is open to anyone with a 4.95 or higher with no recent no-sends.
Most of all lets have fun!!!!
If you are not sure how to decorate matchboxes I know there are tutorials out there but don't have one on hand. If anyone has a link please post in comments. Thank You!
