Matchbox Week: What's in the Oven?

This Matchbox Oven holds 2 Small chocolate chip cookies.

Here's a close-up:

  • "Bake" is using the SU Exclusive billboard alphabet die. Adhere with Tombow Adhesive.
  • To make the back of the stove, cut (1) CS 2-3/4" x 2-5/8", punch two corners with a 3/16 Corner Rounder punch.
  • The rolling pin is made by using the Word Window Punch, lightly sponged using Close to Cocoa ink, then attached to (2) Real Red Horizontal Slot punched handles. The rolling pin (finished size 1-3/4") is then adhered to the back of the stove using dimensionals. Love it.
  • For the stove top, a small square 1-3/8"x 5/8" is finished by using the 3/16" corner punch. There are (4) 1/4" circles on each side.

Here is a photo showing the Matchbox pulled out:
Oven front: (1) 3/16" x 2" for Oven bar. See below how to make Oven opening.

This is so cute - I love it! I saw a big oven on Martha Stewart but it was a little bit too big for normal card or scrapbooking OR in general. LOL. This is perfect! You are the Woman!
