  • Night of Navy card stock
  • Not Quite Navy card stock
  • Creamy Caramel card stock

1. Using a 5-1/2"x6-1/2" piece of Night of Navy Cardstock, cut out the matchbox bottom ONLY on your die, with your Big Shot. Assemble, using adhesive - you don't want it to fall apart, EVER. Set aside.
2. Cut a piece of Not Quite Navy card stock to 1-7/8"x2-1/2". (This should JUST fit into your matchbox.)

3. Rub the Not Quite Navy card stock with your Embossing Buddy. Stamp the pine tree from Lovely as a Tree several times with the Garden Green craft ink; emboss with Iridescent Ice EP. Heat set.
4. Using a tiny paint brush, paint snowflakes (little dots) onto the background of the Not Quite Navy. Paint some on the tree branches, where snow might collect. Paint the bottom of the Not Quite Navy, as the ground. Set aside to dry.
5. Rub a scrap piece of Creamy Caramel card stock with your Embossing Buddy; stamp the deer from Forest Friends with the Chocolate Chip craft ink. Emboss with clear EP; Heat set. Cut out carefully!
6. Punch hole in TOP of matchbox (one of the skinny sides) with the Crop-a-dile. Set the eyelet into the hole; cut a 4-inch piece of silver cord, and tie a knot in the cut ends. Thread middle through the eyelet; the knot should stop it from going through!
7. Adhere your Not Quite Navy card stock to the bottom of the matchbox. Obviously, you want the snow scene part to face OUT.
8. Place a puddle of Tombow Multi wherever you'd like your deer to stand. Place deer's hooves into glue; prop upright into place. I left mine to dry overnight!!!!! He'll want to go any way BUT upright if you're not careful!
9. Sometime while the glue is drying, make your banner: On a scrap piece of Shimmery White card stock, use your Night of Navy Stampin' Write Marker to separate the two words on the MERRY CHRISTMAS stamp from Teeny Tiny Wishes. I freehanded the banner around the words; do whatever you like! :D
10. After the glue is dry, paint the bottom and edges of the matchbox with Frost White Shimmer Paint. Allow to dry - but it dries quickly. :)
11. Using any adhesive you like, attach the banner to the side and top of your matchbook.
