Shopping Our Stash #261: You Are Matchless

Hey everyone and happy Tuesday!!
It's time for a new challenge over at 

This week, challenge #261 is....
You Are Matchless
(Create your own matchbook/matchbox)

Here is the project that I created for this challenge:

I decided to make a little matchbook that holds a piece of chocolate. I used some patterned paper that has been in my stash for over a year. The best part is, I was able to use up some of the scraps in the paper pad. I used staples to close the bottom flap of my matchbook, they are just covered up with the crochet thread. I used a word die from Pink & Main and finished off the front with some enamel dots as well as some bling. I have had the bling for a really long time, at least 2 years! 

Here is a pic of the matchbook from the top:

and a picture of it opened up:

Be sure to head over to the Shopping Our Stash Challenge Blog to see what my design team sisters created. I hope you will decide to make a project and join us, I would love to see what you create!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!
I hope you have a great crafty day!

Well-executed, as usual! I love that it looks like you also papered the spine! Mmmm, who wouldn't like to receive this as a quick "thank-you"?

Hi Judy! Thanks so much! I made my matchbook to specifically fit the chocolate I used by placing the candy on a piece of paper and winging it from there so you may need to adjust based on the type of candy you use. The matchbook pictured above is a piece of cardstock measuring 2.75" x 8.75". Scored at .75", 3 7/8" & 4 3/8". After you staple the bottom, you may need to trim a small amount of your top flap to tuck inside, based on staple placement. I hope this make sense. Thanks so much for stopping by!
