Altered Matchbox

What can I say... I'm mad about boxes... big... small... square... round... you name it. Today I finished work early and had some spare time to play. Altering this little matchbox was so much fun to do, I like doing little projects :) Red is not my preferred colour but somehow I loved working with it today, it matches this paper perfectly.

Materials I used are
PaperMania - Petal Elegance 1.6cm midi punch (PMA 258104)
Martha Steward Craft Punch - Classic Butterfly
Graphic 45 6x6 Paper Pad - Curtain Call
Cardstock/Paper - Red and Black
