Trinket Matchbox Tower


This ever so cute 'trinket' box is kreated using the Big Shot and the Matchbox die. Only Orange, Summer Sun, and Pixie Pink are each run through the Big Shot to kreate my 3 matchboxes. With the perfect scored and popped out template, I easily assembled my boxes - Bonus: no adhesive is necessary to assemble the matchbox base!
At this point, to kreate the 'tower' you will need some adhesive. I placed some Sticky Strip on the bottom of the box and adhered the boxes on top of each other. Then I took a piece of the new Kaleidoscope DSP (2-5/8 x 7-1/4) and wrapped it around my tower of boxes. TIP: Also adhered with Sticky Tape for a strong hold.
Each matchbox was adorned with Crushed Curry or Melon Mambo Ribbon and Flower Assortment Brads for the 'handle'. Isn't it so adorable? And with the Big Shot doing most of the work for you, its a pretty quick project too! Thanks to Gretchen Barron for coming up with this adorable project.
