My Swaps for our Group Meeting



4 Hershey's Nuggets fit perfectly inside!

I went to a meeting at my upline's last night. We always do a card swap, but I didn't feel like making cards. I decided to use the new Matchbox Big Shot Die that is in the Occasions Mini Catalog (page 16, #114890, $42.95) to make these cute little boxes instead! I forgot to take a picture before I left, so I had to make another one today to show you. I used 3 different colors of cardstock: Tempting Turquoise, Orchid Opulance, and Certainly Celery and mixed them up so all 3 colors were on each box. Then I stamped some like the bottom picture above with The Great Friend stamp set (p. 6, #113792, $17.95) and some with "Celebrate" from the Matchbox Messages stamp set (p. 17, #113800, $25.95). All of them had a piece of the 5/8" Satin Ribbon (p. 17, #114616, $8.95) and a rhinestone brad for some bling!
I also decided to also make one with a clear acetate cover- it's hard to see in the pictures but it's there. These boxes are the perfect size for 4 Hershey's Nuggets, and the clear cover really shows them off! Each Nugget has an address label stamped with the dots from Big Bold Birthday wrapped around it. The colors I used are: Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery, Apricot Appeal, and Cameo Coral. I used my Color Coach to choose them. The stamp on the tag is also from Matchbox Messages, stamped in Cameo Coral, layered on Certainly Celery, and tied on to Apricot Grosgrain with a silver eyelet and linen thread.
Wouldn't these make great wedding or party favors? Or just a cute little gift! Besides the Nuggets, 6 Hershey Kisses, 2 Ghiradelli Chocolate squares, 3 lip balms, a pair of baby socks, golf tees, small deck of cards, and of course money also fit inside.
