Striking up a little ART...

It's really amazing what you can stuff into a small, 32 count matchbox. It's also amazing how tickled I get with these little treasure boxes. It's fun to make them AND it's fun to trade them. Okay, now pair that with my love of HALLOWEEN, and how could I resist!

I made this one to send off to my swap partner. I say that I made it, but really I took the matches out of the box, and decorated it. Then stuffed it with all sorts of teeny, tiny goodies.

I bought a package of 8 matchboxes (or was it 10?) at the Dollar Tree. I could have made the box from cardstock, but really, at 10 cents I think I got a sturdier box. Take that back, I KNOW I got a sturdier box.

See that spider in the box? It's attached. I glue dotted it down. Kinda creepy? Yup!
I hope my partner likes it. I do.

This is awesome, but that spider would give me a heart attack. It's maybe a good thing I'm not swapping with you this time. :-)

This is so cool, I'm always amazed at your creativity, you never have a dry spell.

Your swap partner is going to love this (or they are crazy).

These miniature treat boxes are SO stinkin' cute! Love how they are decorated and yes, I AM amazed at all the goodies they contain. Thanks for listing a source, too!!
