Matchbox Dies



Hi and Good Morning, I hope everyone is having a great week so far!

This week I wanted to show you how quick and easy it is to make a gorgeous wee gift box out of the Cheery Lynn Designs matchbox dies.

I used the largest Matchbox Die set for this gift box, and cut out 2 pieces in matching double sided 12 x 12 patterned paper.  I assembled the box quick and easily, as all the folds are embossed and it just all falls into place so well! :) 

I then decorated the sides of the box with  Sophias Heart border, and the Forever sentiment.

 
The top of the box is decorated with the matching Sophias Heart Mini Doily, and I made the flower from one of the new release floral strips Gardenia.  I held this together with a pearl brad and added some olive green leaves cut from the Rose Leaf Strip.
 
 
This was such a lovely gift box to make, and so easy too, I can see lots of uses for this die and all the other sizes to make a set!
 
All dies used are:
 
 
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and I hope you find time to enter our challenge this week where our theme is Silver and/or Gold, or see more gorgeous inspiration from the rest of the DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration blog.
 
Have a smashing week,

It's all the little embellishing detail that you've incorporated in this that catches my attention. The border along the side is beautiful with your pearls.

Such a sweet little box!
Pretty colours and lovely design:)
I hope you and your dogs are doing just fine. My leonberger are having some problems with her ears. We have been doing some tests and the allergy tests are negative. She is on a diet now. Hopefully we will sort out the problem. It's difficult when our four legged friends are having health problems.
Hugs, Heidi:)
