Easel Top Matchbook Box

I have been thinking about making an Easel Card and also a Matchbook Box, so today I have decided to combine these two in one project.. I REALLY LOVE how this has turned out!!! I will be making more of these.. That's FOR SURE!!!

This is the project for my upcoming "Easel Top Matchbook Box" class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. You will have a choice of the design, I will be making another one with Angel Lala from La-La Land Crafts tonight. This class is scheduled for:

Tuesday, November 24th, 12 pm to 4 pm
Saturday, December 5th, 12 pm to 4 pm

$35, 10 participants max.

Please bring your Scor-Pal, Scor-Tape,large and small glue dots, foam tape, and your favorite dry adhesive to the class. All other supplies will be provided.

Class kits are NOT available for this class, sorry...

Please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151 to sign up for the class.
*Please wait until tomorrow to call, the store does not have this class on their calendar just yet..

The base of the box measures 6" x 6", just to give you an idea of the size of this project. The drawers are big enough to hold a Gift Card. Or you can use the drawers for the notes and/or different trinkets and other small "treasures".

I took a lot of photos to show you the different angles of this project.. I just wish it wouldn't be so overcast today.. the pictures did not turn out all that good, I wish you could see all the sparkle!!

Designer paper by Scribble Scrabble. Christmas Morning Tilda from Magnolia (you can buy this stamp at Cranberry Hill Mercantile online store, here is the link). Flowers were made by combining Marvy punches with Poinsettias by Hero Arts. Leafs are the EK Success punch. TONS of glitter on the flowers and the leafs. Martha Stewart border punch. Cuttlebug corners. Sentiment on the back is from Hero Arts, cut with Nestabilites.

All the supplies used to design this project are available for purchase at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. If you don't live in the area, please call the store at 408-736-9151 to place your order over the phone.
