I'm always looking for notes to write important data or just draw something in boring moments. That's why I think it could be interesting to create and swap some matchbooks.

The matchbooks can be decorated by any media: paper, fabric, paint, drawing, collage and so on.

You will have 2 partners to send 2 matchbooks each (Total of 4 matchbooks). This is an international swap!

For a template, please, visit this website: http://www.ruthannzaroff.com/mirkwooddesigns/matchbook.htm

These are so much fun to make and are really easy if you use the paint sample swatches from the hardware store too! It is a matter of fold; fold; insert paper; staple; decorate!

Wee! I am so glad you started this swap! :D Thanks

Should the sticky of the post its be under the staple or on top? I couldnt figure that out? Thanks!

Oh my goodness, these notepads are gorgeous! Thanks for running this swap - if you hadn't, I never would have known about them

I think it would be better to put the sticky part under the staple. It will be better to use the other pages without taking the first one. But it's just a suggestion ;-P

Neran what do you mean by use the other pages?

NeranCrafts 02/28/2009 #

mmmm, I will try to explain me. I mean that if you put the sticky part on top, you have to take out the first post it to write on the second one. But you can do it whatever you want.

Do we have to use sticky notes? Now I'm confused! I thought it was a notepad with any kind of paper, blank scrap, whatever? That's what the 2nd website shows anyway.

Zipp0099 03/ 1/2009 #

Ok thanks! I used scrap paper and it worked better for me.

Carol, you can use whatever you want.. Sticky notes is just a possibility
