Pop-Up Box Sneak Peak!

Whew! I just finished "teaching" my first set of classes at Impressive Ideas! It turned out to be really fun! We made three different projects, mostly concentrating on the pop-up box technique. It will be posted later! Each class had 5-7 in it and everyone was just wonderful! Bonnie and Jenny at Impressive Ideas have created such a warm and welcoming environment, they have an incredible group of customers which is the result of that!
They have most anything and everything you need or want...but, if for some reason it's not there they are more than happy to get it for you! It is with their encouragement, patience and the love of sharing and teaching that I am here blogging! 

This matchbook is so easy to make and can be use for so many occasions. They are great for birthdays, party favors', any holiday cards and just for fun! 
I have used a heavy card stock. The base is 8 1/2 x 2 3/4. I have scored at 3 1/2, 4, and 
7 3/4. The outside has been dressed up with Impression Obsession Witches Chant stamp. It was stamped on the diagional and the the edges were torn and edged with blackbird. I've stamped Embrace your inner witch by IO with Versafine Imperial purple. The Halloween Die Set, also from IO, has been rubbed with Violet and Yellow green Inka Gold. 
Tied off with a ribbon, bow and some Viva Pearl pen drops!

The best part is the goodies inside!
