  • 1 Roll foam tape
  • 3 Sheets Coloured cardboard (red, blue & yellow) or 1 sheet white cardboard


  1. Seperate the matchbox inserts from the outer cover.
    Using your hole punch cut coloured or white card. You will need 6 dots per box.
  2. Paint your pieces with your equally with the 3 colours. If you are using white card you will need to colour those pieces too.

  • I think these could be used travelling too


  • I can see a game of dominoes being made, depending on the amount of holes punched. Thanks for the idea.


  • Have never seen these before or heard of Riot. Will have to look the store up. Thanks for the instructions.

  • I love lego; my daughter loves lego, too.

    The matchbox looks cute, but could we use it for?


  • My little boy loves doing craft and has just discovered lego so I can’t wait to show him these :)


  • wow i love this idea! it’s so cute. i don’t have any match boxes though

    • you can buy them all white from craft stores like Riot, :)


  • They’re great, I remember making dolls house furniture out of match boxes when I was young.

    • We used them for arts and crafts too – beds for miniature dolls too.


  • These are just what I have been looking for thank you for sharing


  • Really clever – they look fanstastic! Definitely good for parties, or my kids would love them just to keep little “special” things inside!
