Anything Goes in a Matchbox!

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today on the Cheery Lynn Blog I share a fun a project for the Anything Goes Challenge. I 'm using the medium match box die to create a box for a mini book that I created with the French Flair die! I LOVE these little boxes! I can't wait to make more!

Cheery Lynn Dies used
Tiny Flower Kit (Set of 3) - B376
Mini Fanciful Flourish - B117S
French Flair - Classic LG Stackers Nesting Dies - XL-12
French Flair - Scalloped LG Stackers Nesting Dies - XL-13
Alison's Ribbons - B335
Miniature Rose - B152
Medium Rose - B154
Flourish Leaf Strip - B178
Matchbox Medium (Set of 2) - B329

To created the mini book I die cut out a scalloped French Flair out of watercolor paper that was half as wide as the matchbox. That way when it is folded in half it it will fit I then . I cut pages for the book from copy weight paper. The small French Flairs were folded and trimmed and glued together on the cut edge and placed in the covers. The cover was watercolored using Derwent pencils.

all elements of the box and flowers were created with the water color paper. I love the effects you get by watercoloring one side of the paper and dabbing the back side for a hint of color. Dew Drops and watercolor completed the center. All surfaces were hand colored with Derwent and water.

The mini book in this matchbook is perfect for your wee notes , secrets, passwords...whatever small item you need to keep up with!
