This is my little Halloween matchbox. The outside has foil which was embossed in a Cuttlebug folder (swirls). The edges of the matchbox were painted with purple acrylic, then the foil was attached when it was dry. the foil was then painted with black acrylic left a while and then the excess wiped away to reveal the silver foil.
Inside was covered with pattened paper, the booklet is just a small piece of card cut to fit and stamped with a moon (which I stamped over pearl dabber and some trees and embellished with a shrink plastic bird (Tim Holtz). The front was simply stamped with 'by the light of the moon'.
The same bird on shrink plastic was used for the pull on the drawer of the match box.
