Deconstruction of a Matchbook Box

 Once in a while I get quite 'contrary' and try my best to use things in a way they weren't necessarily intended for - keeps the mojo fresh! haha.  So....the 8X8" Matchbook box gets seriously sliced up...and the Place in Time papers get used NOT as a calendar.


Deconstruction deconstructed:
I removed the upper half of the outer cover leaving only the bottom portion and decided it would make a cool holder for paper and pencils.  The idea evolved from there and so I ended up with a Family Mail Box - a place where family members can leave notes for each other - complete with little mailboxes for each person and a place for papers and pencils too!




Supplies:

Papers from Place in Time Collection
7.  Various foundation papers (cut up to make note paper)
Embellishments
Others
1.  May Arts
2.  Paint - Liquitex
