Matchbox Hostess Gift

My new stamp club started this month.  This time I am doing things a little differently.  Instead of meeting every month for 5 months, we meet every other month.  This gives everyone a little more time to play with all their new stuff and it also gives us a chance to order from all the mini catalogs.  Normally club starts in January and runs through May.  I'm hoping everyone will like this schedule better.

So here is the hostess gift for this month.  I did use retired paper on this.  I bought the paper from the Stampin' Up Clearance Rack.  Don't forget to check that out occasionally.  We never know when they are adding new products and some items go really fast.

This was made using the matchbox die, a die I haven't used much, although I don't know why, it makes very cute boxes.  I've just stacked three matchboxes on top of each other and wrapped Designer Series Paper around them.  When you open the top drawer, butterflies come flying out.  All the drawers are filled with miniature candy bars.

Pretty cute idea isn't it?  It's not my idea and I have no idea who to credit for this, sorry.

Thanks for looking,

Very cute! I don't have that die, but this is yet another reason to add it to my wish list!
