Match Stick Holder

Poor me, in order to make today's project I had to eat a whole entire can of Pringles.  Somehow I powered through and I did it.  Ooooh, the sacrifices I make for crafting~

Before

After
All you have to do is eat up the Pringles, cover the tin with some beautiful paper, gold doilies, and other embellishments and you're done!  (Notice some of the goodies from my Consumer Crafts haul??)


Obviously, these are the super duper extra long matches you get for lighting fireplaces, bar-b-ques, etc.  I don't have either but with the holidays coming up there'll be lots of candles to light.

Don't forget to remove the strike plate from the box and adhere it to the bottom of your can~


Now I don't have to go searching for the ugly box tucked away in the bottom of some forgotten drawer or cupboard.  I can leave the pretty container out and always be prepared.

Oh you poor dear, forced to eat chips just for our sake. You are a champ! Thank you for your sacrifice! I think it was worth it though.

Hi Tamara, I’m Anne from Life on the Funny Farm (http://annesfunnyfarm.blogspot.com), and I’m visiting from Fantabulous Friday.

This is such a fantastic idea! Never would have thought of it, but it makes such sense.

Anyway, thanks for posting this. If you’ve never visited yet, I hope you can pop by my blog sometime to say hi…

Another lovely idea Tamara! Those are my favourite Pringles - maybe I need to buy a pack to try this craft...

Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
Hope you have a fabulous week!
