The Open Sea Matchbox for Father's Day!
One of our May Play Day Projects was making a Matchbox for Father's Day.
The box part was made from Not Quite Navy cardstock, and the top "wrapper" was made from Nautical Expedition DSP. We stamped the "for you" from the Great Friends stamp set in Cherry Cobbler, then stamped the anchor from The Open Sea on Whisper White cardstock. It was punched out with the 1-1/4 punch, mounted on a Basic Gray circle punched with the 1-3/8 circle punch, which was then mounted on a shape from the Matchbox Die cut from Cherry Cobbler. We tied a piece of Baker's Twine (Cherry Cobbler) around the box. Inside was Hershey Nuggets wrapped in different pieces of Nautical Expedition DSP. I think this makes a great Father's Day gift!
