Technique Tuesday: Matchbox Die & Jumbo Grommet (Tutorials)
April 24, 2009
The last project we did for April's Technique Tuesday Class was with the Matchbox Die. I received a similiar swap in my last Controlfreaks swap group. I adapted it to the supplies I had on hand.
OK - so if you don't yet have the Matchbox Die from the Occasions Mini catalog (#114890, $42.95) - you'll want to get it! And if you order it this month, you can choose an "Under $10" Item for free! AND get a free catalog if you order it online! Woohoo!
How To: Matchbox Die Assembly
For my "To Go" class packets - here's a couple of little tutorials on how to assemble your box and use the new Basic Jumbo Gromments (also from the Occasions Mini Catalog #114348, $6.95 for 5 of four colors, total of 20).
Step #1: Fold on all scored lines, then fold inward the "sides" as show in the photo.
Step #2: Fold the "ends" to "wrap over" the preforated corners. The very tips of the ends should be folded the opposite way. These small "tabs" are what keeps the box together without adhesive.
Step #3: Use Sticky Strip to adhere the cover together, then slide the box into it.
How to: Basic Jumbo Grommets
Step #1: Press the grommet into the flower. TIP: Use the mat pack to protect your surface.
Step #2: Turn over and hammer the "prongs" flat. Use the mat pack again to protect your surface.
Step #3: Thread both ribbon ends up through the center of the grommet and tie off.
Enjoy your quick and EASY matchbox!
Supplies use: Big Shot Die Cutting Machine, Matchbox Die, Flower Embosslet, Parisian Breeze Designer Specialty Paper, Baja Breeze Cardstock, Sticky Strip, Basic Jumbo Grommet, Chocolate Chip 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Crafters Toolkit (for mat pack and hammer)
