Sending Love Spin-able Match Box


I finally made this spin-able match boxes.  I first saw this  spin-able match box at "dream, create, and share" blog.  She had a tutorial for sale, but I didn't buy her tutorial. She used to have a video to show how the match box spin, but it's no longer there.  I also didn't own Stampin' Up! match box die cut either.  I hand cut all these eight match boxes.  They are the same size as the die cut.  Yes, they took sometime to make.  Now I have to give that match box die cut a second thought.

This is the top of the box.  It's very simple.  I just added this flower that I saved from the wedding that I attended last year.  I thought the color matched the Sending Love DSP perfectly.
Here is the side view.
 Here is the top view.

I used the empty ribbon spool for the base to make it spin.

Thanks for looking.

Have a great day!

This is so pretty! I have been thinking of making one for some time now!

I have the matchbox die and I love it. Let me know what colors you like and I will cut some and send them to you to assemble - it would take no time at all to do! :<)
