Stampin’ Up’s next mini catalog, the Occasions Mini catalog, is available to purchase from one week from today, on April 1. While I’m sure that we’ll all be very sad that Sale-a-Bration is over, there are some amazing new items in the mini catalog! (If you have purchased Stampin’ Up items from me before, check your mail for the mini catalog, it should be arriving this week!) One of the great new products in the mini is another exclusive die for the Big Shot, the Matchbox Die. It is a Bigz XL Die, so you need the extended cutting pads for it. It also has three super cute tags that can be cut out using the die. One of them is on today’s project. There are two stamps in the catalog that coordinate with the tags as well. I just love how everything matches with Stampin’ Up! Here is the first matchbox that I made:
I used the Delicate Dots Sale-a-Bration paper and the So Saffron Sale-a-Bration ribbon to finish it off. (Only a few days left to get these!) What can fit inside? A whole bunch of things! Four Hershey nuggets fit perfectly. You could also put in a pair of earrings or a necklace, a sweet note, or if you are Eve, a whole bunch of Polly Pocket clothes! I used an idea I saw from Stampin’ Up and put in three lip balms, also wrapped in the same Delicate Dots paper.
Super cute, huh? I love how this turned out! I can’t wait to make more!
