This is sort of a retro-active post because I made these little shrines some time ago, but never posted them! I’ve gotten more and more into shrines recently and wanted to share these before I post the more recent ones.

These are made using the small standard-sized matchboxes, although you could easily expand on your theme and use a large matchbox or, as is very popular, a re-purposed Altoids tin. Each of these was made for a friend with their interests in mind – one related to Dia de los Muertos, one Keith Haring, and one Dolly Parton. I hope you enjoy them – I can’t wait to hear your feedback.
