Winter is here and that means fires in the fire place and cozy evenings curled around it with a good book or a fun project. But just because you’re lighting fires, that doesn’t mean you have to do it with plain old matchbooks. Liven them up with a little paper and Mod Podge.

Things you’ll need:
Scrapbook paper
Mod Podge
Foam brush

Things to do:
1. Using the matchboxes as a guide, cut strips of paper the exact width of the matchbox.

2. Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge along the edge where the striking strip is and then across the surfaces until you have made your way all the way around back to the striking strip, leaving it uncovered.

3. Smooth paper onto the box surface. For larger boxes you’ll want to leave both striking surfaces uncovered so that you have plenty of it for the whole box.

4. Smooth the paper down well and allow it to dry before using.
