Mad Makers: Episode 1

Matchbox Shrines!

Welcome to our first episode of Mad Makers! This tutorial is for making matchbox shrines. It takes roughly 20-30 minutes, although you can make it at whatever pace you’re comfortable with.

Below is a kit list, a link to the video tutorial, and finally a few pictures for reference. We hope you enjoy crafting! If you have any questions feel free to get in touch at madcovid@gmail.com.

When you’re finished, don’t forget to send pictures of your creations (if you’d like to share them) to madcovid@gmail.com. We hope to include as many as possible in the Mad Makers digital art gallery.

Kit list:

  • 1 small matchbox
  • A pencil
  • A pair of scissors (preferably a small pair, if you have some)
  • A glue stick (or PVA)
  • 2 x small bits of paper – one for decorating the inside of your box, and one for covering the outside
  • A small object to put inside your shrine
  • Needle and thread, or glue, for placing your object(s) inside
    • You might find a ruler comes in handy for measuring your paper
