Altered Matchbox

Here is a picture of my altered matchbox. It is the first time I've tried an 'altered' project and it will probably be the last. 
The premise is that you take an unwanted item, something that would be thrown away (rubbish in fact) and using imagination and ingenuity change it into something beautiful. 
But then you have something that you would have thrown away, that is still cluttering the place up, but because it has had time and effort spent on it, you can't throw it away!
I kept having Blue Peter moments...sticky backed plastic and old cereal packets.
Got to go now - photo will follow.
