I've noticed a flood of cute little projects lately using the matchbox (probably because of the new SU die which is
$43!), so I thought it was time to make a file. The first one I did in DS (these are GEORGE only), using actual matchbox dimensions I found on the Internet. It is really cute but came out tiny......just like a real matchbox (duh). For my next one I made it 2.5 by 3 inches, perfect for one project I have in mind. For my third try I didn't know what size I wanted, so I did it as an SVG for SCAL. This allows me to make it any ol' dimension I want, however I was limited by the 12x12 space because of the lid on the mat, and also it seamed like when I made it different sizes the wrap wasn't quite right. I figure anyone who has invested in a cricut and ds and scal, probably also owns a paper cutter and you probably know how to cut a rectangle so I removed that part. So the SVG is for the bottom portion of the box only, cut any size you like, all the way to gift box size. then just wrap it in a rectangle around it. These come out great if you use double sided designer paper, very sturdy.
