Matchbook Madness!

Being a deomonstrator, we have access to a lot of awesome resources to some wonderfully creative ideas to help along the way.. I got this idea out of the July Stampin Success magazine. I am like a sponge for new ideas. I loved this and it was so easy to make. It is like a mini brag book to include pictures in that you can keep in your purse, on a scrapbook page.. a little gift. When opened, there are 4 photo pages for photographs and its ready to easily embellish. I need to get some pictures together. I added velcro on the bottom but I was not thinking (blonde moment) when I did it and it was showing when the matchbook was closed. Ugh! So, I sorta hid it with the ribbon that I stuck to the bottom. One thing I enjoy about paper crafting - there is always a way to fix a mistake! LOL (and I make a lot of those).

Supplies used:
Crumb Cake and So Saffron Cardstocks
Newsprint DSP
Subtle Designer Buttons (So Saffron)
Crumb Cake Ink
SU Sizzix Hearts & Brackets Originals Die (which is retiring - so bummed)
Linen Thread
Daffodil Delighth 3/8 Inch Taffeta Ribbon
Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch

Quick Directions:

Cut a 9 1/2 x 3 3/4 inch piece of cardstock. Score at 4 inches and 8.5 inches Fold at score lines. Decorate and Embellish as desired.

For the Photo cards: Cut (4) at  3 5/8 in x 4 3/8 in pieces and decorate and embellish as desired.

Enjoy and have a GREAT Tuesday!
