The Matchbox Project is a really simply community art initiative based on using matchboxes of all types. The idea is that each week a decorated matchbox containing a tiny present is left in a public place somewhere in the world.

The Matchbox Project started as a joke, but hundreds of different designs have since been created, even matchbox tuxedos.

The new twist is taking this project online; you now no longer have to physically find a matchbox, you can bid for ones you like online. Stats for Hidden Art Presents Trending: Older & Chilly
