MIM #237

I was supposed to be working today, but a last minute cancellation gave me a free day, and what better way to spend it that playing along with the current Make it Monday challenge at Papertrey Ink
Our challenge was to make matchbook valentines, but with a 16 year old boy my need for class valentines went out the window a long time ago so instead I used the matchbook idea for a slightly different purpose. For a while now I've been playing with the idea of sending one or two of my littler nieces a pocket letter. The only thing really stopping me is trying to think of things to go in matching letters for their brothers.

I thought I might make some sort of hair tie or barette to go inside this matchbook. That, however, will have to wait for another day. The iris is from Flower favourites, as is the little handmade sentiment. The bottom sentiment is from Mini blooms.


  1. great idea for a super cute matchbook - they're perfect for so much more than valentines!! thanks for playing making monday!

  2. So cute! What a great idea to add hair ties or barrettes!!

  3. This is SOOOOO pretty! Love that you made a beautiful one instead of cute...you just gave me some more ideas! Thank you!! :0)

  4. This is precious! I love the idea of a hair tie! Very creative and classy valentine.
