Matchbox Shrines

I love making art out of found objects. There is nothing so satisfying as taking something that is not worth anything and turning it into something beautiful or fun. Lately I have been making little shrines out of matchboxes. You can get a package of ten matchboxes at Wally World for less than a dollar. Add a little paper, glue and paint and make something more than the sum of its parts.   

These are fun to make for your friends- you can put a pair of earrings or some candies in one for a sweet little gift. I like to make them wearable, because that is how I roll:

You can add a pin or a even make a necklace:

I used old earrings and added broken jewelry pieces to this one.

Another fun application is to make a wallet sized picture frame:

Made new business cards

I designed the cards using images from the Graphics Fairy, and printed them on the back of the card stock, so they have a nice pattern on the back.What do you think?

Having fun

Here are some of the new things we have going on at the Market:
