Do you fill the box with anything?

exousia 06/15/2010 #

Yes you do. You can put Alice in wonderland related items. Whatever you can think of. Buttons, stickers, bobbles, ribbons, mini mushrooms, beads, anything that is Alice in wonderland like :)

I'm excited to get started...do you know where I can buy a matchbox?

exousia 06/18/2010 #

You can make them out of cardboard. I'll see if I can find a pattern. http://www.ruthannzaroff.com/mirkwooddesigns/matchbox.htm

Sometimes you can find them at craftshops. Check walmart too.

I bought a large number of them on ebay so that I won't run out anytime soon.

So this is a fill, right? Not a shrine? Also, here's a good link for people new to matchbox art like me: http://gomakesomething.com/ht/shrines/shrine-fill-book/

Oh pooop just saw this - too late!!

We may have to do another one :)

Hi KatSu, I'm leaving it open. It could be a little shrine, or you can fill it with alice in wonderland themed things.

The shrines are lovely :) Try to have the inside decorated as nicely as the outsides. That is a great link KatSu.
