Soldered Matchbox Tutorial
Hello my dear friends,
are you ready to create a soldered matchbox with me?
You will need: glass cutter,metal ruler.cutting matt, matchbox,photo,old book pages or sheet music and trinkets to go into the box. Masking tape,glue.
Your basic soldering supplies: copper foil,soldering paste,bone folder and soldering iron.
To cut the cover I use the Memory Glass by Ranger 2 x 2 so you only need to make one straight cut.
After you scored the glass, lay it on top of the metal ruler and line it up with the edge to easily break the glass.Does that make sense?
Use the masking tape to reinforce the box and than cover the box with sheet music or old book pages.
Here is the box all ready to get wrapped with copper foil.

I hope that this was helpful to you- but do watch the video it is really good. Wishing you a wonderful start of the week and have fun soldering.
Hugs and love,
