Beach Floral Matchbox Giveaway

Hi everyone! Do you have unfinished projects lying around? Raise your hand if you do. ✋Well, this is an unfinished matchbox that I cut out and put together the box part of it about six years ago but never finished. I ran across it while straightening my craft room and had a brilliant idea on how to finish it off.


A lot of times I hit the proverbial wall and instead of forcing creativity I put my projects aside and "sleep on it" for a while.


This matchbox diecut I had purchased from Stampin' Up several years ago. I decided to go with a beach floral theme for the outside of the matchbox. I added an assortment of flowers, cheese cloth that I inked up, mini seashells and cording. 


Of course the inside had to have an assortment of beach inspired goodies too.


I  found this vintage image of this boy dressed in a sailor outfit on The Graphic Fairy and knew I  wanted to somehow create a mini journal for the matchbox. 


I stapled five pieces of notebook paper to the inside of the mini journal. 


Now for the fun part! Adding goodies! I raided my stash and added colored items that could be used for the beach/ocean and a mini set of rubber stamps with its own stamping block. 

Giveaway Time!
