on pinterest, and was instantly inspired to create a .cut file on Cricut Design studio to make this without having to print it on paper and cut it out by hand as the tutorial instructs. Plus if I designed it for the Cricut to cut out then I could have 12 x 12 paper, rather then being limited to 8.5 x 11 paper that could go through my printer.
My envelope-style matchbox is 3 x 5 x 1 inch when assembled. My .cut file even includes the 2 layers and the polka dots that decorate the outside.
Before I attached the layers to the outside I glued the polka dots to the white layer and ran that through the cuttlebug with my old favorite Swiss dots embossing folder. I love the illusion that this is patterned paper, rather than dots added on, that is created with this embossing technique. Plus I just love polka dots, so its a win win in my book.
As with all my creations if you have the Design studio and George basic shapes cartridge then I would be happy to share this .cut file with you. Please leave a comment on this post and be sure to include your email address and I will mail the .cut file out to you.
Find inspiration everywhere! Go... Create something fun & fabulous. Enjoy!
