Ok so last week we put a gift card in a match book mounted on an A2 card …this week she is showing you how to make 4 separate matchbooks out of one piece of paper and then 5 inserts out of a second piece of paper….these are so cute that I immediately thought about cutting and scoring paper while watching TV…WHY YOU ASK can’t I just watch TV…. I have no idea but now I find that if I am not doing somthing my needlepoint or my knitting while I am watching most TV I fall asleep… THEN when I finally do go to bed …I am wide awake…. plus sometime this is only time I have left in the day to do some of this… and the cutting and scoring is not the fun part anyway…so if I put the page in a sheet protector with the measurements ( I write in the scoring as she sometimes doesn’t give that except verbally in the video) the as I cut and score I can drop the piece into the sheet protector and viola…I have the pieces ready to assemble for a quick treat for anyone even for someone random like the check out person at the grocery or even another shopper etc…or my nail person or hairdresser… if you carry a few in your purse ( put them in a zippy bag in your purse) or they will end up looking like they were in an elephant stampede….and you can skip the step of brushing the color on the score lines…and the person you try to give it too if it’s a stranger will run screaming away from you ….lol
If I have misspelled Ghirardelli..once I have misspelled it several times so if I don’t get them all fixed its because I didn’t have enough chocolate…lmao…that is the hardest dang word to spell correctly and apparently I can misspell it a variety of different ways….no matter how you spell it the DARK SALTED CARMELLE are SINFUL…and ADDICTIVE….but there are lots to choose from so pick your favorite and spread a little love .
You will also notice that she doesn’t mount this matchbook on anything its just a little matchbook with chocolate inside…I love this idea… and I like that I can pre make them and have them ready to decorate whenever I need or want some… I think we are all going to want to spread some love and positive feelings for the next few years.
EYE CANDY .baby anythings are eye candy right??
HERE IS A FUN LINK..EAGLE CAM FT MYERS FL..its just across the river from where I am and about 50 yrs ago when I was in high school one of my girlfiends took me here and we had a great time driving and old jeep around in old orange groves… NOW there has been an EAGLE NEST with a mated pair there for a few years now and they have live cameras on them… the first male died and the new mail is M15…think that may stand for male 2015…in any case currently the female hatched two eggs on the 31st and 1st… click on the link and you can bookmark it a go to peek at the eaglets and mom and dad whenever you want… it does become addictive though…
