I have some fun news and a neat little project to share with you! A little while back I was approached by Donna at K&A Diecuts to do a bit of guest designing for her! I was super excited to be asked and of course I said yes!!! She has a neat twist to her business, at least I think so! Everyone loves die cuts right? Well, since not everyone can afford a die cutting machine and all the great dies to go with it...I mean, how many different dies are out there? Hundreds?...she offers the die cuts for sale...no cutting or hassle involved! And the prices seem pretty reasonable to me. I know that I personally get a little tired of die cutting when I have a ton of one thing I'm trying to make up. Isn't is so much easier to just get them pre-cut and all you need to do is put them together and add embellishment? The majority of dies that she has are boxes, purses and things such as that.
Well, she sent me an assortment of different diecuts to work with. The first thing I decided to make up was this cute little matchbox. I used my PaperTreyInk Holiday Treats set...such a fun set! The scalloped was made using my Marvy giga and mega scalloped oval punches. The blue stars were inked using Versamagic in Aegean Blue. I also used Colorbox Cateyes in Cranberry and Ice Blue. The ribbon around the box is red grosgrain over light blue organdy. Inside the matchbox I put four Hershey's Nuggets and wrapped them in Avery labels stamped with the Holiday Treats polka dot stamp.
There are so many cute things you could do with these! Wouldn't it be neat to make some up for Easter and put little treats and goodies inside them and hide them along with the Easter eggs?
