Family Matchbook Box
with 60-Seconds Video Tutorial
By Marina Blaukitchen

 

 

“I adore Deep Matchbook Boxes (8.5x6.5x3.25 inches), they are perfect to store a lot of things and also is the perfect complement to albums.

 


I show in my 60-seconds video how to decorate a Deep Rectangle Matchbook Box to store my paper dolls and dresses. I have a lot of them that belonged to my family for years. There’s not a better place to store them than a beautiful box like this. I hope you like it and make your own decorated boxes.

 

 

Tips:

Select the paper collection that match with the things you want to store in, so when you see it you will know exactly what keeps in it. Graphic 45 has the perfect collection for each occasion.

Chipboards, stickers and fussy cut paper allow you to personalize and decorate your box, contributing different textures.

Whoever oversees the promotional side of Graphic 45 is doing a bang up job! Every time I come here I learn about new Graphic 45 products and ways to utilize them. I didn't know about these matchboxes, but after seeing these creations, I am going to have to order some! Well done Graphic 45!

Loved this. It brought back happy memories of cutout dolls from my childhood. And now I can have the same fun in a grown up way!

Congratulations Kate! Great prize package!!! Love the paper dolls, don't see them much anymore, but when I was a kid I had every paper doll of all the movie stars and played for hours by myself. Guess all that cutting taught me to fussy-cut images for my mini albums. Would love to win one of the G45 prizes.

As a child, I also played with paper dolls. Wouldn't it have been fun to have a matchbook box to keep them in? Thanks for the memories, Graphic 45! Congratulations, Kate!

I really like the idea that was mentioned about decorating the box as Marina and Lena did and putting a mini album inside. Has anyone tried using acetate on the lids to help hold things in? I rush to the G45 newsletter in my email everyday to see what the two projects are. I always save the ne

I would love SO much to see Penny in a Christmas collection with Victorian reds and greens. Or the burgundy and pink color shades in her coat and hat. I personally would love to see the reds and greens

As always,inspiring ideas with the fabulous g45 products. I love seeing the tutorials and what I call "functional art" that I would not have come up with. This collection reminds me of when, as a sickly child, I found so much fun in paper dolls. I love this collection!

I'm glad that I watched the video, because I wouldn't have known how to cover the top of the box, with the acetate, etc. Thank you very much.
