Well done everyone .

Now on to this months challenge which is to use a matchbox and the winner of this months challenge will win 4 digi's of their choice from LEJ Designs

I have made a a doll house wardrobe and my ingredients were as follows:

1 match box
acrylic paint
4 head pins
1 match stick
2  round beads
2 square beads
inca gold
scrap of paper
quick dry scotch glue
The method i used was to cut the matchbox lid down the middle
Mix red and white acrylic paint to get pink and painted the whole thing
I glued the back to the base, added the square beads to the bottom and attached the round beads to the door using two of the pin heads then secured them by using scrap paper card to the back of the doors.
I then distressed the whole thing using inca gold and made two hangers out of the other two pins . I hot glued the matchstick inside and tah dah one miniature wardrobe.

  I had fun making this and hope you will join in too . Here are some pictures that my design team have come up with to inspire you some more .
This has been created by the lovely

and the fabby
