Crimson Weave by American Crafts
scrap of black ribbon
double sided adhesive
matchbox or matchbox die
A cute little treat box that can be whipped up in no time at all. I recently purchased the Quickutz Matchbox Die because I was using so many matchboxes that I felt it was actually more environmentally friendly to cut my own out of card scraps and recycled boxes, than the buy the matchboxes when I don't really need the matches just the boxes.
So my box above was cut from red and black card using the die, but you could just as easily cover a matchbox with coloured card. The buckle is the type used on wedding favours threaded through a little scrap of ribbon, and a few rhinestone brads popped in for buttons. You could whip up a dozen or more in an hour I reckon.
Do you ever have too many ideas going around in your head? So much so that you actually end up spending all your time thinking and none of your time creating? I am hoping that this clean, quick little project is like a mini detox for my brain LOL
