Occasions Mini - Matchbox

Day Two for my Occasions Mini features -- Matchbox Messages and the Matchbox Die for the Big Shot!


The Matchbox die for the Big Shot makes these cute little boxes so easy to make! Run the paper through the Big Shot, do a little folding, add a little well-placed adhesive and fold it together! I used textured Chocolate Chip card stock for the bottom, and the beautiful textured Parisian Breeze Specialty DSP for the top. The Matchbook Messages co-ordinates perfectly with the Matchbox die to add interest to plain tops, or to add tags to attach to the boxes. I used the Polished Stone technique with re-inkers that match the DSP to create the tag, and stamped over top with StazOn Jet Black ink. Add a little Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon and some Linen Thread to attach the tag, and this is done!
