Altered Matchbox Art

Did you ever think that an altered matchbox could actually take on the look of a museum quality piece of art? Here it is direct from Finland.

"Letters to You" matchbox art by Kaija
The artist is Kaija of Etsy store paperiaarre which offers a very nice selection of handmade books and other artistic paper items.

I think what appeals to me the most about the work is its simplistic, understated elegance. The artist also offers something else with these treasures, letters to you written in another language. How magical is that?
