Click here to see enlarged project

This matchbook card is really like a" tiny mini " album. Totally unique and easy to create it's really an unusual take on the traditional gift card. You can include photos, quotes, wishes and thoughts that let your Dad know just how he's changed and how much he has influenced you throughout the years. Designed by Suzanne Carillo our matchbook album has been created using Bisous' double sided papers and Father CUTouts. Mini paper bags are stapled inside the matchbook where the little tag/pull out pages are nestled. The flip side of the cover has been used to place an additional quote which is this month's FREEBEE.

Materials Needed: May Father's Day Matchbook Album/Card

Assorted Bisous Double Sided Papers

Rustic Blue cut to 11.75" x 2.80" plus 3 tags/pages 2.25 x 4 with corners rounded

Cottage Stripe & Plaid (back & front) for matting

Bisous Father C-018 CUTouts

Mini paper bags, 2.25" x 3", rub on letters, leather string, staples,brown and black ink pads and chalks.


1. Form you matchbook by scoring (folding) at 4.5" 5". Fold up at the 10.25" mark. This is where you will staple the mini paper bags, under this little fold. You should have something that looks like a matchbook now.

2. Ink and chalk your mini paper bags and then stagger them so that you have a waterfall effect and can see each opening of each bag. Glue them one on top of the other. Staple these grouped bags in the fold so they are placed on the inside of your book.

3. Create your mini pull out pages from the cardstock papers. Add photos and journaling and decorate as desired. Don't forget to decorate the inside flip side of the cover with our FREE quote block.

4. Close matchbook and tie with leather string.
