07 Dec Matchbox makeover
I love lighting up candles and tea lights at wintertime and that’s why we always have a matchbox next to the candles. But isn’t the matchbox just so ugly? I know I’m exposing my craziness here, but it really did bother me. So time for a quick matchbox makeover!
I figured that the easiest way to do this would be by using washi tape (decoupage might be another good option) and luckily I have plenty of it.
To make sure that the yellow doesn’t come through the washi tape, I first cut white card to be glued onto both sides of the matchbox.
I then started cutting strips of washi tapes to cover each card. It was actually easier to cut the strips a bit longer than needed and concentrating on getting the pattern right.
Once the card was covered with washi tape, I just turned it around and cut out the excess tape.
The cover looked nice, but the yellow frames next to the striking strip didn’t look too great.
