And it sleeps in a matchbox!

Sometimes men have such great ideas ;). I talked about swapping with my boyfriend and someone I study with, individually. I told them about the altered matchboxes. And they both thought it would be such a cute idea to make a little bed out of a matchbox, and put a little dol to sleep in it, with a little pillow and a little blanket.

So, this is the deal... Make one bed-matchbox for one partner! Decorate it with a lovely bed/night/sleeping theme and when your partner opens it... she (or he) has to find something cute sleeping in it :). Make sure the little person/creature will have a blanket and a pillow! Maybe it will even have a stuffed toy or something... Please be creative! A 32ct. matchbox will be fine but you may also choose to make a larger one!

I've changed the deadlines, they were a bit early. Both are one week later now.

I had so much fun yesterday creating my matchbox :). How are yours going?

I finished mine too! It's really cute. BTW, I wanted to share here that I've discovered that shipping your matchbox inside an empty Altoids tin (insde an mailing envelope) works really well. It protects it perfectly and your partner will never get a squished matchbox!
