All Spruced Up

I saw this little matchbox project on Kay Kalthoffs' blog and thought I would give it a try. She has a free tutorial on how to do it.

I realized after I took the photo that I didn't put the candy in the box...but it is supposed to hold some underneath the pop-up image! I used the Fast & fun Notes stamp set.Isn't this a darling purse from Wanda Johnson? She made this in her Christmas Giftables Class. You can see more pictures of it on her blog.

If you would like to make a purse like this, you can purchase the step by step tutorial on my blog under Purse-onally Perfect Notes on the right hand sidebar or the tutorials page for just $3.95.

Thank you Wanda for sharing your photos with me!
Thank you Holley Sullivan for the Stylish Blogger Award!


  1. Becky I'm crazy about the match box pop up card but not real clear how you make the image pop up. I looked at Kay's blog but it wasn't that clear either. Can you tell me more how you did that?
    Thanks so much!

  2. Thanks so much for including my project in your post, Becky. I feel like a celebrity today! ;-D Wanda

  3. Love your matchbox! I ordered my set of Christmas paper/card stock, they're so gorgeous.
    Matchboxes are my favorite, but I love making containers, purses etc.
    TFS and have a very Merry Christmas!

  4. Hi Becky -

  5. Did you see the one Carrie Rhoades did that looks like Santa popping out of the chimney? I think she did it last year. So cute! Love yours too!
