Altered Matchbox

Look at what the very talented Trudy Warrington has created with empty matchboxes! What a special gift it is!


There is so much to it - please click on the picture below to watch a slideshow. If you wish to stop the slideshow and see the photos individually, just click on the thumbnails within the slideshow.

The dress is made with Fantasy Fibres. Trudy inked a rubber stamp with Versamark and then Stazon, and put it rubber side up on her worktop, and laid fantasy fibres on top of it. The more fibres you use, the thicker the skirt is.


She then put greaseproof paper over the fibres and ironed it with a medium hot iron, ironing until she could almost see the pattern through the greaseproof paper.


She then trimmed the fibres around the bodice shape. This is such a beautiful effect, the fibres just flow out of the bodice as the skirt.

The dress is then mounted on to mountboard covered with  patterned paper and cut with the Tim Holtz Sewing Room die cut.

The necklace was a broken one found in Primark by Trudy - they sold it to her for 30p! The bottle and shoe were treasures found at a car boot sale!


The feet are chess pieces!


The cogs at the back are cut from pearlescent card using the Spellbinders cog dies.

The drawer handles are beads threaded through with wire. The tickets are cut with a Tim Holtz Die, and stamped with Invoke Arts stamps.

Many thanks to the very talented Trudy for sharing this beautiful creation with us.
