Thanks a Bunch!

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a Safe & Happy 4th of July this week!
Becky here again today to share a little project I did using the MATCHBOX, a TAG & some FELT FLOWERS (also available in an AWESOME ASSORTMENT!) from Creative Cuts & More & some stuff from my stash!!

First, I "folded" up the FELT FLOWERS & wrapped them with this,
Then I stamped the center of the top of the box with a music stamp,
Then I created a little "bunch" of flowers by wiring them together & then adhering them to the top of the box with stamped masking tape (secured more with a strip of the Red Tape), & put the MATCHBOX together!

The MATCHBOX really is a treat to work with! It's super easy to put together - you only need to glue the outer part of the box! The sliding inner-part just folds together!
Inside, I stamped the TAG all over with blue ink, folded it like a little "matchbook" & embossed it with that little design.
Since the "drawer" needs to slide in & out with out being caught, I attached a little photo holder to keep the top of the matchbook closed inside the box.
At the last minute, I decided the project needed a little bling - so I added some jewels to the matchbook & the flowers,
Here's the final project up on end...
That's it for today!
Hope to see you soon!
