FIF #13 Matchbox

Good Morning, my bloggy friends.  I have definitely been MIA for a bit.  Life gets busy and as you all know, can get in the way.  I have completed all the projects for my design teams but that's all the crafting I have been able to fit in.  I need to do something just for me to post here for you. 

Today the new challenge at Flaunt It Fridays is to use the matchbox #2 from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More.  This cut is extremely challenging and was so hard for me to figure out as I do not have the cartridge but just as a free download on my Gypsy.  Thanks to all my wonderful design team members for the help when I was so frustrated with it.  Just a hint if you are going to make one....use heavy cardstock for both the base and the lid and place both on your Gypsy mat at the same time so they will size proportionately and fit together....clear as mud :).  Please feel free to contact me if you need further help.

Here is the little box I came up with after I wasted a ton of paper that did not fit:

As far as the supplies I used I know that the card stock and printed card stock are Recollections and everything else is from my stash.  I have NO crafting budget right now at the moment so it is either use it up or don't make it.  Since I have enough in my stash not making a project doesn't seem to be a problem.  This box could be used for a gift card or small gift or for whatever you want to use it for.

Please come over and join us this week at Flaunt it Fridays and show us how you flaunt your matchbox or similar cuts.

Until next time,

{{{{{HUGS}}}}},  Heather

  1. I tried this challenge today and after many, many, many attempts I finally declared that it was indeed a challenge and one I was not willing to go crazy over lol. I am so glad to hear someone else had a great deal of trouble with this cut also. In the end you box truly turned out beautiful though. I really want to make one and may try again later in the week.


Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment. I love to hear from you, my friends.
