Decorated Matchbox Button Box Tutorial

Decorated matchboxes are perfect for storing vintage buttons.

Scan a vintage button card and print it, or, use the image provided below.


Cut a piece of scrap book paper to cover the entire matchbox cover.
Apply modge podge to the back of scrap book paper and apply to the cover, wrapping it around to cover the front, sides and bottom of the matchbox cover.

Cut the button card image to fit the front of the matchbox cover..  
Apply modge podge to the back of image and affix to the front of the matchbox cover.

Coat entire cover with modge podge to seal and protect the box. Stand on one of the open ends and let dry.

When completely dry you can add embellishments like, lace, ribbon, or buttons.
