Graphic 45 outdid themselves with the Rare Oddities Collection. It has one of my all-time favorite patterns- paisley, along with skulls and potions and amazing colors! Since Halloween is fast approaching I felt the desire to make some fun pieces to get my home looking festively spooky. Since I love to take pictures of my kids in their costumes but don’t take a lot, I created this tri-fold brag book that will hold just enough photos and can be stood up and displayed as a Halloween décor piece year after year, as well. I love double duty projects! I hope you check out the tutorial I put together for you and try one out for yourself. Change up the collection and it’s perfect for any occasion and is so quick to put together that they make great gifts, too!
A link for written instructions are at the end of the post after the supply list 😉

Hi, all! I have fallen in love…again! Meet my new love- the Graphic 45 Altered Art Matchbook Box. I am terrible at buying gifts, so I am mainly a money or gift card giver and I wanted a fun new way of presenting a small gift, like a gift card or similar. So, in walks the new love of my life and, boy, did we had a blast together! Throw in some World’s Fair paper and a fun pop-up twist when the recipient opens the box, and our time together was super fun!
Tip: Sometimes it’s hard to part with a handmade card for fear of its fate once given away, but the Altered Matchbook Box is a gift in itself that the recipient can use after the gift card is gone: for holding small items or re-gift it to keep the gift giving going (no shame in that). Your hard work and time will not be wasted with this fun gift box.
