Clear Matchboxes

Happy Saturday!!! Ready for some weekend crafting? I made some little matchbox favors with clear covers (so you can see the goodies on the inside!!!). They fit 4 of the miniature sized here for a pattern. They were so easy and fun to make!!

The smaller pattern piece is for the cardstock tray and the larger pattern piece is for the clear acetate cover. Cut along solid lines and fold along dotted lines. Use double stick tape on the 4 corner tabs of the box...and also along one edge of the acetate (as shown in the photo below):

Then just slide the tray into the acetate cover:

Stamps used: Henry and chocolate bar (Hello cling stamp set) and #A106 (Chocolate dipped).

Try'll have fun!!!

How's Your Summer Going?

I can't believe that July is already half over...where has the time gone? I've been busy trying to get some drawings done for my holiday stamps (it's hard to think Christmas in the middle of July!!!) and getting ready to be an empty nester as my son prepares to fly the coop!!! Anyway, I had some time to make a trip card today and wanted to share it with you:

This is the first time I've inked up this bird's part of the Fun Trip cling stamp set (clouds are from the Happy Thoughts cling set).

Enjoy your summer!!!!
