Safety matches were first created in Sweden in 1844 but it wasn't until 1868 that they became known throughout the world. I've always loved the intricate designs you can find on old school safety match boxes and so I made my own!

The visuals aren't very Swedish though - I was listening to Dolly Parton while working on these. Can you tell?
