Matchbox Die treasure chest

I made time to play! The first thing I wanted to try was the new matchbox bigz xl die from the occasions mini. It makes this adorable little sliding box thing. I saw this on SCS and wanted to try to make my own. You make 3 matchboxes and stack them and then wrap with a piece of dp (cut to 2 5/8 x 10) around all three. Tip: Tape the dp to the sides of the boxes so they will pull out and their "case" stays behind. The drawer pulls are half back pearls from the pretties kit. The ribbon in the free SAB ribbon (love that stuff) and the tag is made using 3 new things...
1. The Yummy Stamp free SAB Set - stamped with certainly celery on white cardstock
2. The Brandy-New scallop oval punch (will be available in the mini) - yellow piece
3. One of the tags that is included with the matchbox die (3 tags on this die) - the blue piece
I filled mine with mini snickers, but I can see lots of different little treats in this quick project. Can't wait to show you more.....
