It's another Throwback Thursday Challenge with My Creative Time! This week Emma is asking us to make a project using a retired cartridge. Here's a list of all of the retired cartridges. I was really surprised to see how many are on this list!
So, my projects are usually a bit "girly", but I really wanted to make a little something for my son this time. He's 15 and always looking for scraps of paper to write on while he's at the computer, so I made him a little note paper holder. This is the matchbox cut from Tags, Bags, Boxes, & More. I cut the outside part (found on page 123) at 4". When I first cut the inside piece (page 124) at 4", I found it a little snug, so I resized it to 3.9" on my Gypsy, which was perfect! It cuts with a slit for your ribbon. I put mine through and adhered it to the inside of the box, but then I covered that area inside with a strip of paper to hide it.
For the top of the box, I added a blue layer cut at 2 1/2" x 3 7/8" and a patterned layer cut at 2 1/4" x 3 5/8". The adorable little envelope was made with with the My Creative Time Happy Mail stamp set and Embossed Envelope die. I stamped the "Just a Note" sentiment on my note paper as well.
