~~~ Another First ~~~
Well here I go again. Testing my patience.
I wanted to see if I could alter a matchbox.
I only had an old one that is very shallow.
It was from a motel in Dorset, VT. A trip
with my late Mother over 30 years ago.
So I thought I could practice with it for
myself. I covered both pieces with very old
sheet music and then realized I could not
get the inside piece back in its holder.
So before embellishing I had to figure out
what to do about that. So decided to
glue together. And then when adding
a bead embellishment I had made to dangle,
I ended up also making the matchbox to be
able to be hung up.
And from there just kept adding things
as I came across them.
So when I make one for a swap I hope it is
okay if I don't have to put the box inside. lol
