In our last blog post, we made the matchboxes to hold our embellishments – but in their current form, once weighted with goodies, they may fall over and become troublesome. To overcome this and make sure they acted as a desk tidy, I created a container big enough to hold all seven of my boxes neatly and keep them upright.
I didn’t go overboard with decoration on the container as where it is located on my desk means 3 sides aren’t visible, so I went with a simple rainbow of matching colours on the front. The off cuts are the same size as the card behind the letters.
The container has a reinforced front and rear to give extra protection and provide a little extra stability once placed on a desk waiting to be used. I love mine and couldn’t wait to share it with you. Of course, if you wish to add more or less matchboxes, the measurements can be altered to suit!
- A full EU A4 sheet of card stock
