Matchbox LEGO Beds

I adore matchboxes. They are super sweet and useful for all kinds of adorable projects (just Google matchbox craft). Creating LEGO beds is a simple way to use them in play.

  1. Print the template and cut out with scissors (or use wrapping paper).
  2. Wrap it around the matchbox and glue.
  3. I used a clean tissue inside the box for the sheets.  Fold about a cm or so over for the pillow, and then fold the base up, using the length of the box as a measure. Then fold the other way, using the width of the box as a guide.

Other Ways to Use Wrapped Matchboxes 

  • Write little messages inside and give to friends.
  • Fill with jelly beans or wrapped lollies and gift as a party favour.
  • Place a small gift inside. For example, make a washer necklace and place it in a match box to give.
