• Assorted matchboxes
• Nontoxic glue
• Scraps of wrapping paper or tissue paper
• Sequins, bits of ribbon, tiny seashells, or other found items
Place a bit of glue on one side of the matchbox and decorate with paper, sequins, ribbon, or other items. Be careful not to let the glue drip onto the edges of the box where you strike the matches. Let dry completely.
