ALBUM IN A MATCHBOX
Hope you've got your matchboxes at the ready? Here we go with Project no. 2!! This time we've made a mini album/book in a matchbox. Both of us used a standard small matchbox, but you could use a larger one if you prefer (not everyone can cope with going quite so small!), or indeed make your own to any dimensions you like.
We wanted to showcase different ideas, so Rosie used her matchbox in it's standard form, keeping the slide out drawer dimension, and punched eyelets into the top of the pages, linking the book together with bead chain. The paper is a Paper Whimsy digital collage sheet. Linda cut the outer sleeve and made opening doors, and her landscape album is more traditionally bound. As you can see, your imagination is the only limit!
Send us your entries by next Thursday so that we can showcase them again! Can't wait to see them, and THANK YOU all so much for your response. We've been thrilled t0 have over 1,000 visitors in our first week, and hope that this means we're hitting the right note?
