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.
