As a hostess at Mini Album Scraps one of the swaps that I host is the Altered Matchbox Swap. Now, I know there are people out there that can't get matchboxes, or just have no use for the matches so why buy boxes full of them...? Well I have made this video with people like you in mind. I worked out how to create what is considered the "large" matchbox so you can make them out of cardstock! Also on the Mini Album Scraps site we have a "Templates" page where you can find links to templates and tutorials for all of the other matchboxes shown in this video!!!
This video is long, but I hope it clears up any size confusion you may have and helps you to find and create the size matchbox you are looking for!!
