C026a Matchbook Covers

Measure and cut gray cardstock 81/2” x 31/4”.

NOTE: all inks are from the Tuscany Color Box Petal Point.

Apply Pewter ink directly from the pad to the cardstock.

Stamp fern 09.068.F page 32 using Ms green ink, dandelion fluff E.0362 page 293 using cocoa ink and the dragonfly 23.266.F page 224 using chianti ink. Cover entire piece with clear embossing powder and heat.

Score cardstock at 1” across one short end. Fold into matchbox and staple the small flap down. Butt about 1/8” thick stack of Post-It notes up to the staple.

Close matchbox and lightly press with your hand.

As you can see by the first photo, you can put anything in your matchbox. It doesn’t have to be Post-It notes. If you use a tea bag, here is a poem you can hand write on the inside just below the tea bag:

I wish we could get together
And drink a cup of tea;
But since that is impossible,
Just have this one on me.

NOTE; the candy Matchbook Covers are 51/2 x 21/2”, scored at ½”.

This pattern is in the Stamp It May 2001 magazine page 74.

First taught this class on November 21, 2001.
