Matchbox for a Great Friend

The Matchbox die for the Big Shot is so cute! Plus it's useful, too. After seeing a cute little stack of drawers made with the die, I had to get it! Of course was also the first creation I made with it as well.
I cut 3 drawers using paper from the Walk in Park pack and 3 slides out of Baja Blue cardstock. I stacked the slides and held them in place with double sided tape and then wrapped the Walk in the Park paper around the entire box. A jumbo eyelet was used on the front of each drawer and of course I had to use my favorite little butterfly to embellish the box. See the little tag? The largest layer was cut out using the Matchbox die. In addition to the little box it also has 3 cute tag shapes. The tag image from Great Friend layers perfectly with this tag.

I put a sample of different embellishments in each drawer (even a bit of chocolate ;-) and gave it to a good great friend of mine as a little be-lated birthday goodie.

Yesterday I mentioned going to a scrapbook convention called the Mega Meet. We had fun and I got some new goodies. Mostly embellishments, some paper for a few layouts I have in mind to make, but I tried not to look at paper since I have so much I haven't used already. ;-) See what I got:Stampin' Up! had a booth and the demo was doing a make & take using the new Jumble Alphabet and Good Morning Sunshine papers...both part of Stampin' Up!'s May special.I'm sitting here hoping the rain stops. I had planned to go to the greenhouse today to get some flowers to plant for my mom...and maybe some for me too. Wishing you all a very Happy Mother's Day tomorrow!

The matchbox bureau is absolutely adorable! And the treats inside are a great bonus. What creativity to use those jumbo eyelets, they look like antique handles. They're are one of may favorite embellishments. You are truly a generous fiend.
