Matchbox Candy Holder

Today's project is a matchbox candy holder that I made with my daughter. She also likes the videos that I have been making so I let her help me make on too.

Here she is working on her finish project.
It is really hard to photograph the matchbox but this is what we ended up with as the best photo.
I will add something to it later this week & post a new photo with some stamped images on it. It is just really hard to have her do the stamping by herself right now (she is only 5, it's either too hard or too soft)

Supplies used in our Matchbox Candy Holder:
  • Matchbox Bigz XL Die for the Big Shot #114890
  • Spiderweb Embossing Folder #120889
  • Big Shot # 113439
  • Extended Cutting Pads (needed for all XL Dies) #113478
  • 6 1/2" x 5 1/2" & 6 1/2" x 3" Cardstock - we used the Rich Razzleberry
  • SNAIL #104332
  • Sticky Strip #104294
Here is the video that Madelyn helped to make for this project:

Thanks, Jen (& Madelyn)
