I had such fun designing this kit! I was inspired by the late Victorian theatre (and early film) style of painted sets with "real" actors.
Starting with the new Matchbox Theatre Box: A sturdy chipboard box designed to be the structure for a paper theatre. Note the top cubby (the "stage") can also fit 1:48 scale furniture.
Beside the bazillion photos above (good stuff there so do take a look): the 2 wide photos at right show 1 of the coordinating Fancy Facade Headers (that 1 from the set is also in the kit), and one of the facades (and background image inside the "stage") from the new Art Nouveau Matchbox Theatre Facades Collage Sheet (also in the kit — as well as 2 more new collage sheets with characters)!
Plus 2 colors of Dresden border strips, 3 different raw brass flourishes, and 6 colors of textured aqua scrapbook paper! There is so much here to get your creative juices flowing!
Whew! See the "We Also Recommend" section below for photos/links to all ELEVEN of the kit items, for more info and in case you want to buy them separately. — use this link to see ALL the items in this month's kit.
Plus check out the larger photos above (scroll right on the thumbnails under the main photo to see all the options).
Kits are announced the first weekend of each month. However, if you sign up for a subscription, your kit will probably have already been mailed to you.
A note on timing for subscribers: the kits don't ship till your automatic payment is made; the recurring payment date is based on the date you signed up for the subscription. If you'd like to make a 1-time "catch up" payment so that you'll be first in line to receive all future kits, contact Customer Service.
If you buy a subscription after the 15th of the month, your first kit will be for the following month (so if you subscribe on October 16th, the November kit will be your first kit).
Kits from previous months will be available for purchasing until sold out.210701RT 210530new SOkitdiv
