These are fun to make several of at once, super quick and easy!
These matchbooks hold a "fun size" of M&M's or a gift card (or quite a lot of other treats. I've used the new Sending Love stamps and paper.
It's a bit hard sometimes to see how big something is, so here it is with the fun size M&Ms (I got 28 for $5 at my local grocery store).
Real Red 8 ¼ x 11 (to make 4)
With 8 ¼ on top, score at 3 ¼, 3 ½, 7 ¼
Cut into 4 sections at the 2 ¾ (so each one is 2 ¾ x 8 ¼
Now you have 4 matchbooks.
Fold on the score lines.
You can staple your item into the matchbook, or staple your matchbook closed and then add in the item. The staple is close (but not too close to the bottom) so the designer paper hides the staple.
You’ll see that I staple with the smooth side to the back, as I cover the front with paper.
Decorate the front with the matching paper that is cut 2 ½ square and ¾ x 2 ½ , or you could stamp images instead of using the paper. Decorate the paper with the heart embellishment that you stamped and cut out – so many cute choices with the die set Love Notes!
I think the bundle is a really great deal, it's $45.75 and if you add the matching paper or something else small, you'll be at $50 and then you can choose one of the new Sale-A-Bration items. Lots of nice things this year! If you shop with our host code (see top right of this page), proceeds support our school projects and you share in the host goodies. This month I mailed a paper share of this cute Sending Love paper and a share of the 2 new matching ribbons.
