New Video! Making a Matchbox with a Scoring Board and an Adorable Nurse Matchbox

As most of you know, I make a lot of matchboxes for Swap-Bot. I started out using s template but I quickly found that tracing it over and over not only took too much time but wasn’t precise enough for my perfectionist soul. So I figured out a way to make one quicker and neater using my Scoring Board!

Then I made a video!

I hope you enjoy it. While you are there, please take a look at my other video for Copic colouring.

I really wanted to make a matchbox using this little PI girl but of course, she is much too large. Not to be defeated, I designed a swap for matchboxes with elements that hang off the edges. I attached her with a magnet and created a little stand. The photo below shows the side view of the stand so you can see how I created it. My little guy wanted to keep her so bad (but I made him something else instead)!
