Can an actual matchbox be decorated and used?

vcox 07/18/2020 #

If you question is if you can use a previously made and decorated matchbox for the swap, I have no issue with it, just as long as it meets the same dimensions as the one made and it needs to have at least 5 compartments. The requirement of the swap is to decorate the matchbox. You must decorate it using at least 2 of the embellishments you are giving your partner. So if it is already decorated, it maybe a challenge to include two of the items you are including. I hope this answers your question.
