Wow. Just wow!

OK. I said the other day that I had a new go-to in my crafting supplies. Let me just say that I am blown away. This new toy is absolutely amazing. I'm nearly speechless. Don't get excited, I said nearly! I had put off ordering the matchbox die because, honestly, I just wasn't sure that I'd get enough use out of it to justify the cost - and I do have to watch my crafting budget. Not to mention, have you seen how many folds it has? It has to take at least 3 hours and an engineering degree to assemble, right? If I knew then what I know now, it would have been on my FIRST order! Look at this sweet little number.

Oh my goodness! This box was easy peasy lemon breezy to put together! I seriously had it assembled in about 2 minutes the first time - and that was scrupulously following the directions. I don't think I'll ever get tired of this box! It holds four Hershey's nuggets (the kind with almonds, of course) perfectly. It can also hold small gifts, jewelry, embellishments, and other surprises. I wrapped the nuggets in coordinating designer series paper and voila! Perfect tiny gift to go. The box is made of a base (bottom and sides) and a sleeve that slides onto the box. The die even comes with three shapes that perfectly correlate with a stamp set.

Supplies I used:
Not quite navy cardstock (#100059, $5.50)
Autumn Meadows designer series paper (#------, $9.95)
Not quite navy stampin' pad (#103008, $5.95)
Not quite navy stampin write marker (#100059, $3.25)
Pumpkin pie stampin' write marker (#105115, $3.25)
Old olive stampin' write marker (#100079, $3.25)
Matchbox die (#114890, $42.95)
Don't forget that you will need the extended cutting pads for this die.

LOL! That was the same reaction I had when I used my Matchbox die for the first time. I purchased quite awhile ago and put off using it, because I thought it would be too hard. Wrong! I love that thing! Your project is adorable and so is your blog. Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. They are much appreciated.
