I have been going mail crazy with Swap-Bot, its a great site for swapping. The packages I sent today were for the "Quick Matchbox Swap". It was very simple, just decorate a matchbox with a theme and fill it with tiny goodies. Lucky for me both of my partners have similar taste! So I went with a "Kawaii/Hello Kitty" theme. I filled it with bows, tiny clothespins, stickers, buttons and other kick-knacks.
Im so exited!
I didn't have any decent matchboxes around, so I did what my Granny would do, I made my own. First I tried using a template and some instructions I found online, but they proved to be overly complicated.
Then I remembered how Granny made things, she started by de-constructing. Yes, crazy as it sounds it was like that. Her favorite shirt got stained? She would take it apart and use the old one to make a new one! So simple ad effective!
So I took and old matchbox, opened it up and traced it over heavy scrap-booking paper.
The wisdom of age proved itself once again, Grandma's way is often (always) the best way!
