Drag to set position!

TinTrunk ADMIN February 9, 2009
Thanks everyone for your inventive matchbox stuffing! But remember that you don't have to compete for the most items score if you don't want to - you can do themed collections (see lostartist's wonderful examples), or perhaps try to stuff just one surprising item into a matchbox (Kollage Kid pioneered this idea just now).

There's no limit to the ways you can play with this matchbox challenge! But if you want to compete on quantity, please follow the rules/guidelines below.

Group Description


Take an ordinary matchbox and stuff it with as many items as you can. Post photographic evidence.

If you want to be included in the prestigious Championship League Top Scorers thread in the Discussion section, you must abide by the following:


1) Ordinary - ie small - matchboxes only, ie none of them huge great boxes of 'kitchen matches' like my mum has in her kitchen

EDIT BY TREVIRA (sorry!): there seems to be some confusion about ordinary or standard sized matchboxes. So here's a suggestion -
52mm long x 37mm wide x 17mm deep approximately, with an allowance of a few mm either way.

2) No duplicates. Only one example of each object will be counted. So you can fill yer box with salt, but it will only count as 1 grain.

3) [Added 09-Feb-2009] The fully loaded box must slide into the outer sleeve without causing a bulge. Please include a pic in your photostream to demonstrate this.


Kollage Kid reminisced and Trevira ran with it, here:
