Bohemian Bazaar multi functional Match Box- tutorial

Hi everyone :-)

Had so fun making this Jewel  and game box with the wonderful and colorful Bohemian Bazaar collection.

This is a Graphic 45 Design Team project and here is the link to they`r blog post
For the base I used 8 x 8 matchbox and then I made a chipboard stand and top with a mirror.
Used a Sizzix die for the frame and the mirror I cut out with the same die
Mirror sheets from Tim Holtz


There is place for jewellery and other girly stuff in the drawer.

Made this box as a present for my niece and also want to give her some flowers.
If you like I can make a video tutorial on how to make this tulips
Fun and easy :-)

Used alphabet stickers to write My Nieces name inside the drawer.
Also did some fussy cutting to make a flower vase.

This project started with that I wanted to make a travel game box with different games to play.
It can be used in a car for children so they have fun while driving on holiday.
  All the small game pieces has magnet on the back and also the playing board so the will not get lost while playing.There is also Yatzy and playing cards in the drawer.

The top and bottom is lose so it is easy to take the box out. Top is fastened with magnets.

Fun playing on holiday :-)

Playing Dam

Back side can be used as a frame if she likes to.

Painted a Ornate metal door pull so it fit the rest.
Beautiful ribbon from May Arts

Hope my niece will like this :-)

When the game box is not in use my niece can use it as a jewelery keep sake box

 Measurements for the top and bottom

Glue on the back to the chipboard with hinges front and back
Used 2 different sizes wooden beads For the feets
Used a match inside the wooden knobs to glue them together
