Tiny Art on Matchbox

My time this week was occupied by this fun project, something I had not planned to do at all. I had these empty matchboxes for quite sometime but was not inspired to do much with them till I saw a round up of decorative matchboxes on Design*Sponge recently.

Suddenly, I knew what I could do with the matchboxes. I decided to decorate mine with watercolor illustrations with a botanical theme. I created each label in watercolor using Fabriano coldpress 140 lb. paper. I hand stitched a frame around each little painting and glued it on top of the matchbox. It was a good exercise in small scale painting.

Linked to Paint Party Friday. Thanks to Eva and Kristin for hosting.

Linked also to Try it on Tuesday Handmade by You.
