Make it Monday

The challenge this week at Papertrey Ink is to make a matchbox something or other.  I decided to make a rather large matchbox and to make my own candy bag to put in it utilizing my under utilized fuse tool.

Once again I am agonizing over supplies that I did not bring with me to my winter home here in Phoenix,  and questioning my sanity over things I did bring, like dies without the matching stamp set!  What is up with that?  Oh well, in spite of my rather odd supply choices, I managed to make something.



Supplies:  Papertrey Ink City Scene stamp set and dies, Papertrey Ink Scribbles and Love die,  Pink Paislee patterned paper, WR Memory Keepers Fuse tool and plastic,  Mikes and Ikes (Not very Valentiny but hey, my favourite), Tiny Attacher from Tim Holtz, Hero Arts, SSS, Tim Holtz Distress inks, unknown Washi tape, Tombow glue

  1. this turned out really cute – large size matchbooks are fun and i love your custom candy bag!! thanks for playing make it monday!


  2. cute and wonderful colorful 🙂


  3. I think this is a great way to use the City Scene stamps. Paris = love = Valentine’s Day!


  4. This is a great little matchbook valentine. Love the colors and the Eiffel tower (and your choice of candy). For some reason I am growing an affinity for all things French (or at least Paris). I enjoy going through my stash and embellishing and stamping my cards with a variety of products. That is the most fun for me and I have a blast doing it. Cheers!
