Wicked Challenge #2 Matchbox Tag Holder

Welcome back again today for the 2nd December Wicked Challenge #WKD1209B. Post your versions of this box to the Split Coast Stamper. I made this project (finished size 5"x 5") which contains (4) drawers with tags. The drawers can also be used for candy treats, too.
Here are the tags in each drawer:

Underside showing wooden feet:

How the project was made:
(2) 5" x 5" Real Red CS: top/bottom of box
(1) 4-3/4" x 4-3/4" Whisper White CS for top of the box
(1) 4-5/8" x 4-5/8" Christmas Cocoa Flocked DSP for top of box
(4) Matchboxes: Real Red CS for covers, Whisper White CS for drawer

Below shows the position for each completed matchbox: the drawers are marked with "*"
Assemble the Real Red CS Covers: Be sure to use sticky tape

Assemble drawers except for one end. Pierce center of drawer, push through Rhinestone Brad. The inside of brad prongs will be concealed with the drawer tab.

Position the (4) completed matchboxes, apply sticky tape as shown. Place (1) of the 5" x 5" Real Red CS on top.
Using Mini Glue dots, adhere 12mm red wood beads to each corner.

Top of box: Apply Tombow adhesive to the "cheer". Adhere Flocked DSP to Whisper White CS.

To make bow: Cut enough ribbon as shown for the width of the top as well as for the bow. The Jumbo Brad will be positioned on top of the bow, with the prongs wrapping around BOTH the bow and the one across the width to create a "tied" look. Last step: adhere the completed bow to the back of the 2 layers (Whisper White and flocked DSP using snail adhesive. Add dimesionals to the back, then adhere to the Real Red CS. Complete the box by applying sticky tape on top of the matchboxes, then push down the top and the box is completed.

The Tags:
The front of the tag is shown on the left and the back which is co-ordinating "to/from" tag is on the left. By adhering these two tags together, they are more sturdy than being single layer CS.
(3) of each tag as shown is needed for each drawer. Use silver elastic cord for the string. Cut a 5-1/2" long silver elastic cord, knot, thread through 1/16" punched hole at top of the ornament.

  • Stamps: Delightful Decorations, Christmas Punch (Level 2 Hostess)
  • CS: Real Red, Whisper White
  • Ink: Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive

This looks fabulous Patti. I'm yet to make one of these. I even have the boxes ready to go. Maybe yours will give me some encouragement. Thanks again for all your efforts in giving the detailed instructions.

Your tutorials are just awesome. Even someone as slow as I am grasps the idea. I may just have to break down and get the matchbox die. I am finding a trend with your posts. I am going to need a LOT of new dies. Oh Santa baby.
