A great friend and some chocolate... all a girl needs!

I have had the Matchbox Bigz XL Die for quite some time now, and this is my first posting using it. Aaahh! Where has the time gone?

This was the make-and-take at my last workshop. I can't emphasize enough what a breeze this was to make! The Matchbox die not only cuts out the box and sleeve, but it also makes the score lines! Amazing.

I simply ran Whisper White with the die through my Big Shot for the box portion. I then ran some Raspberry Tart DSP through for the sleeve. TIP: you will want to only die cut one sheet of card stock or paper at a time with the Matchbox die. This will ensure that the score lines will show up.

The sentiment and frame is from Great Friend (Occasions Mini). I first stamped the frame onto Whisper White using Kiwi Kiss ink. Then, using a Stamp-a-majig, I stamped the sentiment. I inked the sentiment using SU markers in Cameo Coral and Basic Black.

A piece of Certainly Celery ribbon (SAB Freebie) keeps the box from sliding out.

4 Hershey's Nuggets fit perfectly inside. I simply used a little more Raspberry Tart to dress them up.

Think wedding/shower/birthday favors! Cool, huh?
