Monogrammed Mini Kraft Matchbooks

Mini Monogrammed Kraft Matchbooks
I know there will be audible gasps, but I actually made something without my Cricut! It doesn't happen often, but like Blue Moons and hunky men picking up my dinner tab it does happen (okay, maybe my hubbie is the only man who has ever picked up my dinner tab - but you get the idea).

These matchbooks are eensy weensy and so cute - about an 1 x 2 inches. I used an OLD (like back in the day when the red Sizzix was the thing) Large red Sizzix die for them. They have been distressed with my favorite ink - VersaMark, dry embossed and the inside pages are held in with stitches through the button on the cover. I had a set of Technique Tuesday stamps with lots of fun phrases on them and did a few with monograms and a few with stamps.

My daughter is begging to take a few to hand out to her friends so they can pass notes to each other (during recess, of course she swears). I haven't decided if I want to give her teacher that kind of headache or not. They would be fun to write a phone number or shopping list on and a super inexpensive gift.
