I've joined in the Swap for all Seasons matchbox swap. Where you decorate 25 little matchboxes and add a gift inside. Now me being penny pinching thought "I don't want to buy 25 matchboxes and have hundreds of matches left over I will make them myself. Easy Peasy!!!!"
I found a template for a larger box found what the measurements of a matchbox are and scaled it down to size. So far so good.
Made up the 1st proto type. Perfect. Made the 1st little box up. Again OK. Two days later I have only got 2 boxes done. Why? I am finding it exasperatingly difficult to get the measurements precise when cutting out from old Christmas cards using a pencil and ruler so I have given in and ordered A Scor-Pal scoring board. Cost? £29.99. Could have got a Martha Stewart Scoreboard for £19.99 but having watched a You Tube video doing a comparison between the two fancied the Scor-Pal more. Hope I'm not disappointed.
