Matchbox creation...

so I got a cute matchbox from my BFF and so I wanted to create one myself...I don't know what I was thinking, but I tried my best! I made my own measurements for this because what I wanted to fit inside...it had to be this size...so let me try to remember the measurements for you...the bottom of the box is...7" x 7"...score 1 1/4" on all sides...
you will cut the tabs...only 4 score lines that intersect. I took a picture so that you could see what I was talking about...those 4 tabs you'll put double stick tape to make the box.
then you'll get a 4 1/2" x 12" DP...score at 1 1/2"...6"...7 1/2"...the edges should just meet...if you use a thin DP, you may want to use CS to reinforce it at the same measurements. here is what the matchbox looks like when pulled out...
I used the labels one nesties for the opening...I even used acetate to make the window. I used my favorite flowers...hydrangeas and the punches w/ sentiment from SU. I added the ribbon to hold it closed and there you have it! oh my...I think I did another tutorial! lol!
have a great week everyone!
