Hello friends. Lexi Daly and PTI's Make it Monday challenge this week is all about making matchbook treat holders for Valentine's Day. Lexi has some awesome ideas and a great video on how to make these little treat holders, and they are a LOT of fun to make! I actually made one last year...you can check it out HERE. I made 2 new ones this week...take a look:
The one on the left I used PTI's Heart Squared and Wonderful Words: Love stamps and dies to create a shaker matchbook. It does make it a little bulky and top heavy (I layered 4 of the square die cuts with a piece of acetate between the top two to create enough depth for the sequins to move around in), but it's still fun! I stamped the small hearts frame with Hibiscus Burst, Lovely Lady, & Sweet Blush to give an ombre effect, and then used a matte finish gold cardstock for the Love diecut and strip along the bottom flap. My 2nd matchbook I made a little bigger and used Hawaiian Shores cardstock and then stamped dots with the Polka Dot Basics stamp set. I used the Stitched Hearts dies to make another shaker element like Heather Nichols showed HERE a few weeks back with a solid heart cut from Pure Poppy cs and a clear heart cut from acetate, and then both stitched together with a few sequins in between the layers. The sentiment from Heart Squared was stamped before I stitched the 2 together. The red & white polka dot strip is a piece of washi tape (Michael's I think). Both of these were quick and easy and lots of fun to make! Try a few (or more!)...they're quite addicting and will make a great little gift for anyone at Valentine's Day!!
