Valentine’s Craft: a Accoridan Book In a Matchbox

Me and Mamma sat together to do some craft, about some weeks back.  “What should we do?” I asked her. Then we decided to do something with a matchbox, when mamma got reminded of this illustrater who illustrates pratham calendars and books(if you have read). She also does beautiful craft with matchboxes.

“It’s beautiful!” I said after we had half-finished our ready made piece. What we made was that we folded some paper(like you make a paper fan) and sticked it in the match box, then i glued some hearts on the paper, and depending on the heart we decided a word. Like if it’s light blue, the word is ‘Sky Blue’. And if it’s brown, the word will be ‘Sand Castle’. The whole night after we were finished I couldn’t resist thinking about the matchbox.


It’s fascinating, how you can turn a old rusty matchbox into something special. It can be valentine’s day craft too!


The words are: Scent of roses, Sunny sky, Fresh rose, Sunset, Underwater, Sand Castle, Crawling ladybugs, Deep blue sea, Star dust, Wild grass, Bright lotus, and Starry sky.

    Hi Pari,

    This idea is too good about reusing match box. And the craft looks so cute and yellow 🙂 one more idea is that using matchbox u can prepare small small sofa sets chairs and all, even that comes out very well. And happy valentine’s week Pari 🙂

      I’m happy you like the idea, Chachi 😀 Good thought, even I’ve thought about making small sofa’s and chairs. They’ll look very cute! I’ll try them next time, and share it with you 🙂 Happy valentine’s week to you too <3

      Hope you're having fun in your new house!

    Very interesting, Pari! I want to call this craft of yours a “micro-art”, for its size 🙂 A lot packed into an otherwise boring match-box!

    I’m guessing you have more ideas coming out of this to create other variants – like, what can go inside the box. Things that come to my mind now include short letters/notes, pictures of people with a one word tag to describe them or their hobby/interest, some kind of word or other games.. What else?! 🙂
