When I discovered that my matchbooks fit perfectly into this old unfinished cigar box, I knew it was a DIY matchbox in the making. I wanted to step up the fancy in a subtle way, so I could leave the dingy box out in plain site. I like showing off doilies in non-traditional ways. And I’m all about practical — and simple — crafts these days. And this matchbox was definitely simple.
I used mine to store matchbooks, but you can slip anything inside: greeting cards, small notebooks, craft supplies, or homemade candies. It kind of looks like a Valentine’s Day chocolate box, doesn’t it?
