Altered Matchbox

This December, Artz de Scrap's challenge is on altering a matchbox with Christmas in mind. We have a used matchbox so I decided to use that instead of creating something from scratch.

I was brainstorming on what I'd do with it that's "Christmasy" I decided why not use it as a gift tag instead of using it as a gift box or something (and trying to look for a gift that would actually fit the box! hehe). It's too small anyway so it could pass as a gift tag.

Here's the finished matchbox. I used scrap paper from my Graphic 45 papers and added stickles to it (center of the flowers).

The leaf is actually a Hero Arts stamp which I cut out after stamping and applied stickles on the end. I stamped Happy Holidays using clear embossing ink and then applied white embossing powder so it would pop above the papers.

Close up of the paper with stickles.

And here's the close up of the inside. I painted it with gold acrylic paint and stamped the holly leaf inside. Attached the maroon ribbon on the side for easy pull out and added the message using Jenny Bowlin alpha stickes.

That's it for today folks! Will check out T!m's 12 tags of Chistmas now and share some work soon!
