Today I finished up matchbooks and have them all ready to mail out for some swaps I am participating in.
They started out as blank matchbooks that you can order from Amazon in a box of 50.
The first thing I do is my backgrounds, then I go back and add images
After the images, I paint the front bottom tab black to use as a background for writing or adding printed words. Then I add washi tape to the tops and the back. There are many ways to alter matchbooks, you just have to add your own style.
Matchbooks are fun to make and don't require a lot of time, unless you are making 50 of them. They are fun to trade with other artists and I especially love leaving them places around town and restaurants for others to enjoy. On the inside flap, I write my Etsy shop.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you didn't forget to set your clock back!
