Altered Matchbook

Over the weekend I posted a sneak peek of this before I had my blog post ready to go.
Wow! I got a crazy response to this little matchbook when I posted it on Facebook and Instagram. Please excuse the wiggly camera.  I was shooting it myself and I also had terribly chippy nails I was trying to keep out of the shot.  
I followed this amazingly simple tutorial to make mine.  
Here are some better photos of my little matchbook!
I used manila to make my base and covered it with Distress Inks. Black acrylic ink was pounced through my stencil to complete the back.  The little book is just a light weight cardstock folded according to the tutorial instructions.  
All of the ladies are from Art Chix Studios.  
I hope you enjoy seeing some closer looks!

  4. this is original! I love your matchbook! What a very cute idea and the way you finished it out is totally amazing! LOVE LOVE the vintage ladies with their sentiments. Love the flowers or petals on their heads. That really gives them such an artsy look! Beautiful project!

  5. What a fun matchbook this is. Love the bold colors, the vintage ladies and the incorporation of blooms!
