This is an oversized postcard from a local college addressed to a retired teacher and would have been thrown into the recycling container, but what you can't see from the picture is that it is heavyweight and glossy and, well, I just thought it could be repurposed into something useful.
I carefully laid it out on my matchbox die so that when I ran it through the Big Shot, old Thomas Edison there would be on the front of the matchbox top.
We have a college graduation party to attend this weekend, so I think I will put some chocolate nuggets in there and, if I don't get around to it, I will fold up the gift check and include that too!
Here is another way to use that matchbox die. I made three boxes using the new In Colors and stacked them one on top of the other. Then I wrapped a pretty piece of DSP around them to hold them all together. I added the ribbon knots on the front of the "drawers" as pulls. This will be a nice addition to my desk at work or maybe another gift. What would you use if for?
