hi everyone i am here to continue with the matchbox shrine!
Step 5 now if you want you can use one of the large rectangles to make something for the top of your shrine if you do i recommend a triangle thier easy and they look cool!
Step 6 now stick the two small thin rectangles to either side of the tray, this is quite hard so i used clothes pegs to hold it in place while it dried. (see picture)
Step 7 after thats dry attach your little shape on the top of the box if you dont want one thats fine just skip this step.
Step 8 insert your picture i chose jasper hale from twilight my picture measurement was 5cm by 3cm but it depends on the size of the matchbox.
Step 9 your done but if you want a stand i used a different matchbox and cut it to length.
Step 10 take pictures and post them on your blog!

Hello everybody. This strange looking thingy is in fact a Twilight shrine in the making! It is for my friend and will contain a picture of Jasper Hale from the films (she loves him!). It is made out of a matchbox and so far it looks like this. This is what i have done so far...
Step 1. Find a matchbox! (very important).
Step 2. Take out the inside tray and cut down the folds of the outside sleeve to make four pieces.
Step 3. Now paint everything with Gesso (mabye two layers).
Step 4. After it's all dried paint it with whatever colour you would like, I chose black and added glitter while it was wet.
Step 5. (i havent got this far yet but more updates will follow soon).
