Altered Matchbox Tutorial/Swap

Eileen has created some great inspiration amongst us all with her Matchbox!! So to get us all into the Matchbox craze how’s about a SWAP?!
Step 1:
Cut your matchbox out by using your SCAL or scissors, next score along the lines and fold them in.

Step 2:
Glue along the gray areas and fold together. Glue on the inside some coordinating cardstock the size of about 2.5x1.5

Step 3:
Alter up your matchbox! I cut out a butterfly and glued down using some of my little mushrooms as the antenna for the butterfly.
I then altered up a flattened bottle cap cut out Word Squares and glued in with glossy accents and a coat of PPA (perfect paper adhesive).
For the bead (great yard sale find) on the front I poked a hole in the tray and placed some wire in and reinforced with glossy accents. My beads inside are from yet another great yard sale find :D
