ALBUM IN A MATCHBOX
I made this little album as our weekly challenge over on the Awfully Big Art Adventure and really enjoyed doing it! It's just an ordinary matchbox, but I decided to remake the inner box in black card.
The pages of the little album and the cover of the matchbox are all made with a Paper Whimsy digital collage sheet, and I've added various faces from other PW collage sheets.
The pages are 3 x 4.5cm and are all double sided. They each have a brass eyelet in the top through which I've passed a brass bead chain to connect them, and added a ribbon tie. I wanted to add beads etc but then it wouldn't fit in the matchbox. The brass piece on the top is a random item from my stash and I honestly can't remember where it came from!!
I had so much fun making this - it was relatively quick to do and would make a lovely gift for a friend.
