I’ve been slightly annoyed by my broken match box and was reading one of the blogs I follow when I found this.
Intrigued by the little pouch looking thing, I clicked on the link.
It’s a cozy for the wee packets of tissues, which I thought was brilliant enough. And would be an excellent, mailable Christmas gift.
I traced the 5X5 book to make 4 squares. You put two squares together, wrong sides facing, with the piece that you want to become the bottom of the pouch on the top. Fold the other 2 squares in half and place on top of the non-folded squares.
Since my matchbox was broken, I cut the scratchy sides off and sewed them to the top flaps before I sewed the flaps to the bottom squares. I also overlapped the top flaps so the pouch would be more closed than the tissue cozy and not spill matches everywhere.
