Oh my life, working with something this small nearly did my eyes in, completed it only measures 3cms x 4.5cms.
I have a pile of old sixpences (for weddings) found for me by my mum, after I set her a “mission” and I was thinking of ways that I could present them other than in a box, organza bag or on a card, as seems to be the usual way and I thought my Sizzix matchbook, cover and page insert die (38-1128), would be perfect.
Once the matchbook was cut out I needed to get the text just the right size to stick onto the front of the insert, in the end I whittled it down to font size 8.5 in Papyrus and for the sentiment on the cover font size 9.
Sticking the sixpence in was the easy bit, using a foam pad so that it could be removed if the bride actually wanted to put it in her shoe on the big day!
A bit of tiny faux stitching and a couple of flat backed pearls finish everything off.
Something a bit different and I couldn’t believe that I had tiny brads that were the exact same colour as the paper I used …. that was such a bonus!
