Making little matchboxes

Over at Swap-Bot I am in the Hooked on Dotees group and a new group swap will be starting called Matchbox Dotee swap. I’ve never made a matchbox before, or done anything with one, so using the tutorial that is linked in the swap description, I made two matchboxes just to see their size. Looks like I’ll be making itty bitty dotees to go in them! The boxes are 1.5″ wide by 2″ long (I think that’s what it was, they are really small).

I have not done the inside of one box yet. I just thought up an idea for these but I won’t say yet in case I do it for the swap. I’m going to try making bigger ones later I think.

    Absolutely amazing! These little matchboxes are ever so inspiring and I love how everyone makes them their very own, by creating them to their own liking. Truly unique. Stopping by from ‘I’m a blogger, follow me’ swap on swap-bot. Your not actually my partner, but I’d thought I’d visit anyway. Love from Ana Goncalves (on swap-bot).

    I saw you on Swap-bot too, but I’m not really your partner. Your little boxes are really pretty! I will explore here some more too.

    I’ve never heard of a matchbox dotee! I may have to look into joining that group as well, I’ve done a few dotee swaps on :-)
    Thank you for being in my swapbot blog group, I look forward to reading your entries!
