I'm excited to move away from the more subdued color schemes of winter. Although I'm not a big fan of purples--it is a must for spring, isn't it?
Here's my Spring Matchbox...
Inside a little chocolate wrapped in DSP...
Cardstock: Textured Old Olive & Pale Plum
DSP: Cottage Wall
Accessories: Matchbox Die, Big Shot, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die (Butterflies), Always Artichoke 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch, dimensionals
Candy Covers: cut 1 x 3 "
Matchbox DSP band is 7"--score at 1 1/2, 2 3/8, 4 1/2 and 5 3/8.
Cutting 12 x 12 Cardstock to use for Matchbox Die
I found these cutting instructions on Patty Bennett's blog--originally this idea came from Lisa Freeman.
The matchbox die is a little longer than 12 inches and rather than waste a lot of paper Lisa came up w/ this awesome way to utilize your cardstock. :) Thanks, Lisa!
Measure in 5 1/2 inches on each of your 4 sides of 12 x 12 cardstock. Cut down 6 1/2 inches to the center of the cardstock. This will make 4- 5 1/2 x 6 1/2 pieces. These 4 pieces will make 2 matchboxes perfectly! Lay one piece over the top and tags and one over the bottom of the matchbox. Wah-lah...all your pieces and no waste!
