[These files are no longer available from my blog - google "My Crafty Files" to find my other site or email me for more details][Edit to add - there seems to be a problem with Google Documents, where I save my files to share them. It's asking people without an account to sign up, even though I have checked the "no need to sign up" box for my files. Until this is sorted out I have gone back to where I used to store them. Apologies if you had a problem earlier, but all should be well now!]
Like a few of (what I consider to be) my better freebies, this one arose because it was something I needed for a project I'm working on.
There are so many uses for this fun matchbook. I carry one with me to my local craft shop, with samples from all my inkpads in it, 4 to a page, so I can easily match up cardstock and embellishment colours. Cut in a larger size it would make a great purse-sized brag book, perfect for a cute way to present and bind a mini-book too! I've made the pages perforated so they can be torn out (which is what I needed), but if you don't want that feature, just cut them in blackout mode to lose the perforations and you'll still have a little nick at each side of the page to show where to crease (and it won't be seen, it's hidden by the front flap!)
At regular matchbook size it can hold around 9 pages (depending on the thickness of your cardstock). Cut it at a larger size and you have room for more pages! 2 of the examples in the photo were punched with a cropodile and held together with brads, the middle one used the more conventional stapled binding. You could also just glue in the pages if you wanted!
There are 3 files, the outer, a page, and a group of 1 outer and 9 pages, ready to be cut from an A4 or 8.5 x 11 sheet of cardstock. If you want to cut your own outer and pages, just be sure you keep the proportions and size the page just a touch narrower than the cover to get the best look!
Please remember you are only allowed to download this file for your own use and may not distribute it to others in any form. I spend a great deal of time creating my designs, please respect the terms under which they are given.
Again, this template will be "live" for 1 week. Next week it will be taken down, and new ones will replace it. Don't forget, if you have any requests, pass them on! I can't promise, but I will take suggestions into account when planning future templates.
These files may not be uploaded to a group, forum or website for sale or redistribution, or shared among individuals. They are expressly for the personal use of each person that downloads them from this blog.
There are 3 files and I have put them into a zip file to make downloading easier. After saving it, open in the usual way, and drag the files out onto your desktop or wherever you wish to save them.
There are 2 versions of each template:
- An SVG version which can be imported into the Sure Cuts a Lot or Make the Cut program and then cut out on your Cricut.
- A DXF version which is Craft Robo friendly, and ready to be imported into your Robomaster software (I'm not a Robo user, so if there are any problems with this, please let me know!)
Any feedback on the templates is more than welcome, and if you have any suggestions for possible future templates you'd like to see, please let me know! If you make anything using one of the templates, please post a link to it here so that others can be inspired by how you've used them!
I hope you like the templates - let me know how you get on! :)
