How to Make a Marie Antoinette inspired matchbox
The Artful Paper Doll demonstrates how to make a Marie Antoinette inspired matchbox. Trace the matchbox template onto a piece of decorative paper. Score the template on the creases and then cut the template out of the decorative paper. Fold the creases up. Affix the creases into a square basket shape with dabs of glue to hold the flaps closed. Fold and glue the ends of the box sleeve together. Slide the basket into the sleeve to form the matchbox. Embellish the box as desired. The box can be decorated with lace underlying a ribbon tied into a bow. Affix small pearl beads to the end of the matchbox.
