Jumbo Matchboxes with Gelli Arts® Artist Kirsten Varga

Hello! Kirsten here with a little twist on an everyday object: Matchboxes!

Usually when you think of matchboxes you think of a very small box. Well, let’s think BIG instead and make Jumbo Matchboxes! These versatile containers are perfect to hold handmade cards, small artworks, handmade books, lightweight treasures and more. I had a lot of fun with this one. The following video will give you all the details!





  • 12×14 Gelli Arts® Gel Printing Plate
  • Gelli Arts® Mini Printing Tools
  • Brayer
  • Liquitex® Basics Acrylics
  • Miscellaneous objects for texture like: bubble wrap, cardboard, doilies,  placemats, shelf liner
  • Pencil, ruler, craft knife, scissors, bone folder
  • Template for a matchbox – I’ve created a simple one for you (based on a template by Mirkwood Designs).
