Small and Sassy

Do you like to tuck sweet and sassy somethings into your kid's lunchboxes? What about a quick love note in the suitcase when your hubby travels, or a little treat on your guest's pillows? The theme: Small and Sassy. The perfect products: The NEW Matchbox Bigz XL Die and sweet Scallop Envelope.

The NEW Matchbox Bigz XL Die, part of the NEW Spring Occasions Mini, is going to be a go-to favorite for small treats, party favors, and quick gifts. I zipped the die through my Big Shot twice with Riding Hood Red and Pink Pirouette textured card stock. Then I added a quick strip of Bella Rose Designer Series Paper in a pleasant polka-dotty print. I layered one of the die-cut shapes (included on the Matchbox Die) with a super-sassy crocheted Fleurette. Some Bella Rose prints were added as Nugget Wraps -- ya know, accessorize the candy! ;)

A coordinating 'love note' was made by cutting a 3" x 2.2" piece of Chocolate Chip card stock. Two Bella Rose prints (remember the candies?) top my little note and a strip of ribbon hides the seam. (A favorite trick of mine.) The sentiment is from Sweet Little Sentiments, a level one Hostess Reward. It's framed perfectly with a stamp from the NEW Matchbox Messages set. The adorable stamps in this new set go hand-in-hand with the Matchbox Die but have tons of other possibilities.

TIP: On the back of my small note I added a white backing so that I could write a quick, personal note.

This little note pops right in to the Scallop Mini Envelope. I added another sentiment from the Matchbox Messages set. I can't wait to leave this as a treat for my sweet hubby... he works hard and deserves and little lovie every now and again.

I love your idea of tucking one of these lovelies in a loved one's suitcase for a special surprise. Very sweet and clever.

This project is a home run and will get lots of attention on SCS. Hugs, Mary
