I found a fun project there the other day and had to try it. It was an altered matchbox. Now, I received a new release digital image from Squigglefly that I thought was PERFECT for my own altered matchbox, BUT...I couldn't find a matchbox in the house to save my life (or create my project).
glued it together, making sure the box slipped in and out easily.
Squigglefly Challenge on their blog, to use sentiments somewhere on your project, either from Squigglefly, or a stamp, or from the computer, or your own! So the front of my matchbox card uses the sentiment that comes with a fun digi image from artist Diana Garrison called Feelin' Froggy?. I love images that come with their own sentiments, don't you?
I jazzed up the patterned paper and the sentiment with Stickles, Liquid Glass and Liquid Pearls, and added a 3D flower for the "O" in Froggy. To help the recipient of my card with opening it up, I threaded raffia through a couple of punched holes in the box side, as well as a button, then tied the raffia into a bow.
I hope you like my card, and understood my directions for making it. Again, the internet is loaded with video and photo tutorials if I just confused you LOL.
Do you put sentiments on your cards? If not, you should try it! Not only will you have a specific card when needed, but you can join the Squigglefly Challenge for a chance to win some of their digital images free. Don't have any yet?? Click HERE for freebies! And have fun!
