6. Stamp the word "fly" with black ink and glue a crown made of foil on the head in the picture.

8. Glue the tile to the matchbox cover with white glue.
9. Punch two holes on the inside panel of the matchbox. Thread the fibers through the top of a small key embellishment. Thread each end of the fiber through each punched hole in the end of the matchbox, suspending the key on the inside of the box.
10. Thread the two fiber ends through a wooden bead on the outside of the matchbox and push the bead up to the box. Tie the ends of the fibers together.
11. Glue a preprinted saying to the inside of the matchbox for this vintage tile necklace.
