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.




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.

Bought a few sheets of the paper..haven't used them yet...just love 'em. Thanks so much for the videos, please keep them coming!!!

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.

Henderson Elizabeth Dr joy is a trust worthy spell caster and he will be of great help to you. I never believed in spell casting but After 4 years of marriage my husband left me because I lost my womb, and i was unable to give birth to children. I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called Dr joy whom i met online after my friend Becky Ross told me how he also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 2 days. I believed her and decided to give Dr joy a try and i contacted him on his email and explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 2 days, my Husband will come back to me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth to children. At first i thought it was a joke but i took courage and believed as Dr joy has said and it did happen just as this Great spell caster said, My husband called me and was crying, begging for forgiveness. I forgive him and today i am so glad that all worries and problems has gone away, and we are even happier than before, another good news is that i am pregnant now, and very soon we will have our baby. Dr joy is really a gifted and a powerful spiritual man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. I advice you all If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems just Contact Dr joy on his email on because he will always help you to solve all problems. Once again thank you Dr joy. Thank you, thank you. you can also call him or add him on Whats-app: +2347088404185.
