Matchbox Seashell Art

Matchbox SeashellI’m tried some new Matchbox Seashell Art projects, and have found a lot of inspiration at my local Michaels store. These colorful little sea shells were perfect for a beach-themed box.

MATERIALS
Matchbox PDF Template (sleeve, tray and insert)
• Papercutter or scissors
Stabilo markers
Mini sea shells
• Craft glue
• Scotch tape or glue stick

DIRECTIONS
PREP: Print a sleeve, tray and insert for each student. Follow template diagrams and fold a tray and trim an insert and sleeve for each student.
1. Students color a flat sleeve with markers, using a beach theme. Let marker color dry before trying to glue or tape together.
2. Students color an insert and place it into a folded tray.
3. Sea shells are glued on the insert as desired with craft glue.
4. The sleeve is wrapped around the tray and taped or glued in place, along the glue fold.
