I hope you enjoy this tutorial and have fun mixing and matching colors and patterns!
Also, thanks you for voting! I really appreciate it!
Step 1: Supplies
4~ 2 pieces of different patterned paper
NOTE: if you have a matchbox, you can reuse that instead of making a new one. Just wrap the matchbox in the patterned paper like you would wrap a present
Step 2: Matchbox Template
Adhere it to the patterned paper with glue or tape lightly (just so it'll stay in place while you cut it out)
Step 3: Assemble Matchbox
For the lid: simply make it into a box shape and glue the extra tab. Stick it to the inside of the box.
For the base: glue the trapezoid shaped tabs and stick it to the inside of the paper to create a box. Then glue and fold down the second flaps
Step 4: Circles
On the "lid": put the half cut pieces on every corner of the box like shown
On the base: glue the fourth cut pieces on every corner like shown
When put together, it should look something like this
Step 5: Outer Straps and Handle
Wrap the outer straps around the "lid" almost touching the circles, but not too far over
Fold two little tabs so that you can glue the handle down. Trim the tabs if necessary.
Step 6: Decorate
Step 7: Polaroid Images
Step 8: Passport and Postcards
Do the same for the postcards, glueing the wrong sides together
