You’ll get all of these pieces with the matchbox die.  The best part
is that the die not only cuts the pieces, it also scores and perforates
for you.  You can see why (on a project like this where you need so many
matchboxes) that the die is worth its weight in gold!

Make the box:

Punch out and make assorted embellishments to decorate the boxes.  Don’t forget to make the numbers, too.


I’ll see you tomorrow for Part III.
