Fun mail for Pay It Forward

About a month ago someone starter a Pay It Forward chain on Facebook and I decided to join.  The first five people to reply to my post were added to a mail list for something hand-created.  It took me a little bit of time to decide what I wanted to make and this is what I rested on - a Matchbook sticky note holder and a 3 x 3 card.  

The Matchbooks are so easy to make and yet, so practical.  I did not come up with the pattern by myself.  I made these quite a few months ago from a website or blog and I cannot seem to find it.  But it was not my original creation.  If you want cutting and scoring directions, just let me know.

I used our retired "Dotty for You" polkadot paper pattern and the CUTE "Girls Rock" stamp set.  I thought it was fun and fitting for the recipients.
I enjoyed making these for some great friends:  Lydia, Sundi, Tawnya, Lulu and Jennifer.  I love sending fun mail and hope they enjoyed receiving them.

Here's to a fun, LONG, and enjoyable weekend!


  1. Please send me the directions and scoring info!!!

  2. Here is the information, Tonya: Dimensions for Matchbook with Stickies: Cut paper 9 5/8 x 3 1/2. Score, on the long end, at 3 3/4, 4 1/4, and 8 5/8. Fold accordingly. Place a staple in the middle of the bottom, 1" flap. Decorate as desired and you are done! Let me know if you have any questions.
