DIY Easy Decoupage Shabby Pink Matchboxes

You can watch the video here:  

Ready to make those plain old cardboard matchboxes look spectacular? I’ll show you how with this simple Decoupage project. Winter time means cozy nights by the fire, but you gotta have matches! And they have got to be pretty matches. Let’s make those Matchboxes a pretty Pink Rose and carnation Shabby chic themed room accent. Here’s what you’ll need to make these. 

First and foremost, here is a link to my papers. I have created these papers and you’ll want to have a look around both of my stores while you’re on this site. Upcycledecoupage and patioelf. Mostly watercolor images of all sorts of flowers-though I am always adding new papers to my line. Just for decoupage and mixed media! Here’s the link to these papers.
