Thread: PIF Matchbook Shrines

    PIF Matchbook Shrines

    Okay, this is for the gorgeous and fun MATCHBOX SHRINES! This works as a normal PIF.

    * List 3 themes you would like. The next person comes along and chooses ONE of your three themes, and makes you a matchbox shrine out of it. You then, post 3 themes you would like in return. Someone comes along and makes you one of the three themes, and then rinse and repeat.

    * You must mail your matchbox shrine within 14 days of offering to make it.
    * Do not chat in the thread! PM users, it makes things easier.
    * Please leave iTrader ratings for the person who sent you the grab bag.
    * Minimum iTrader rating of 3 to participate.
    * Please only offer to make Shrines for THREE people at a time. Once those three have been made, you can offer to make more!
    * These are for the SMALL (I believe, 32ct) Match Boxes!

    Travel
    Christian/religious
    Steampunk

    Are these like the ones I have in my gallery, not sure whether these are shrines or just altered matchboxes?

    I'm not sure, as I couldn't quite find it... but basically a matchbook shrine is a altered matchbox, and in the sliding piece inside, there's usually little charms, etc. I'm going to try getting my pictures up soon.

    Paula, I'll make you a surprise one.

    I would like
    - Faeries
    - Vintage
    - Asian

    *Note, maybe from now on after 2-3 days, if no one claims yours, we should add extra themes and bump it? This may keep this thread moving a bit...
