tiny matchboxes

It’s finals week. Seven of the nine classes down, two to go. Never mind that they’re the hardest finals I have yet – but they are clearly a lower priority than 1) catching up on all of my TV for the week, 2) reorganizing my sock drawer, 3) exercising (if you saw a girl singing – and occasionally dancing to – the Glee cover of Rebecca Black’s “Friday” while running on the beach, that was me), and 4) following through on a crafty little dream I had the other day to decorate tiny matchboxes with cute paper, ribbon, mini rosettes and any other girly things I can get my hands on. Then, print tiny notes to put inside of them, or fill them with candy, earrings and gifts.

These are worth failing my finals for!

    So cute!

    Another fun project is to make oragami boxes. These are the instructions that I follow–


    You can use pretty paper, or I like to use magazine pages. When you get the hang of folding, you can do it so that a specific image in the lid “cover.”

    Super cute! Besides, sometimes a little procrastination & distraction can do a grad student’s burned-out brain good!
