Card - "Be Yourself" matchbox card

This is the cutest little accordion matchbox card. You can untie and pull the two small matchboxes apart to accordion out your message. Then you could fill the little boxes with some treats or money. Would make a wonderful birthday gift for teens or even a graduation type gift. Just kind of a fun way to give money I think. Most all materials used in this project is from Club Scrap.

Supply List:
Cardstock: Provocraft
Rubberstamps: Club Scrap
Ink: Ranger Adirondack Butterscotch & Espresso inks; Superior Palette Black Noir
Ribbon: Michaels
Crafter’s Pick Ultimate Glue
Glue dots
Wooden plugs: Vermont American Head plugs (home depot)
Small Matchbox template


1. Create two small matchboxes using small matchbox template using card stock.
2. Fold drawer and slider cut outs into matchboxes. Adhere edges using glue dots.
3. Ink edges of both sliders to distress.
4. Take wooden plugs and ink to match. Adhere to one side drawer of matchbox with Crafter’s Pick glue to perform as “handles” for opening the drawers. Let dry.
5. Cut piece of cardstock 2 1/8 inches x 10 inches.
6. Mark along 10 inch length, every 1.25 inches and score, creating 7 folds. Ink edges of each fold.
7. Rubberstamp with black ink postage stamp outline on each of the 8 flaps. Stamp using brown ink the alphabet letters BIRTHDAY inside each stamp outline.
8. Stamp using brown ink small “happy” above the “B” in birthday on first flap.
9. Stamp various sentiments with brown ink and mat on to top of one box, bottom on other box, and onto the front of both boxes.
10. Cut 20 inch piece of ribbon and adhere to back of “Y” flap, then adhere that flap to top of bottom box. Adhere “B” flap to bottom of top box.
11. Fold all flaps in and tie together.
12. Fill drawers with small gift for money for a nice little birthday gift.

Have fun and good luck!
