Another Make A Wish Birthday Matchbox - Plus More as I Make Them

One of my oldest friends has a birthday coming up on Nov 13, but he also doesn’t have a lot of room at his condo to store things. Still I wanted to let him know I was thinking of him on his birthday.

He’s a photographer so this paper felt just right. I didn’t have black eyelet so I used nail polish to make a tan one a black one.

Inside are a wee candle, a tag, instructions, and a book of safety matches.

The backsides of all the pieces. The 52 is the year my friend is celebrating.

The matchbox, numbers, and circle tag were cut with my Sizzix BIg Shot. All supplies except the candle are from stash.

UPDATE: I realized I had another November birthday coming up, so I made another for that one! It gave me a reason to dig into an autumn themed paper pack that I especially like.

I put more pics in the thread, because I just love these papers so much!

What a wonderful little box! It will be much more memorable than a simple card. Really cool!

Lovely! The roll of paper looked like a roll of film at first.

So cute and clever. Wonderfully executed.

Thank you!

I remembered another November birthday and made another Make A Wish Matchbox! I think I will make some more for some of the upcoming birthdays and I will just continue posting them here instead of making repetitive topics.
