This little matchbox shrine is made from two matchboxes and holds an assortment of little ‘treasures’.
I started by sticking two of the large matchboxes together then carefully opened one of the long edges so the top opens and the little drawer opens at the side. I used Mod Podge to stick the paper to the box with a top coat for protection. I added the mini lock, the drawer pull fastener and the brass clock face (with a brad) before sticking the inside papers.
To decorate I used a selection of rub-ons and german scraps, a little mask and a piece of the fabric tape.
The little drawer holds a mini book made from scrapbook paper.
The treasures include a clock and spinner, a dagger charm, two filled glass bottles and a fragment doll ‘dressed’ in a scrap of tissue and a piece of fabric tape.
