Matchbox Die Box

My friends and I usually don't give each other gifts for our birthday, we just like to go out for a nice lunch or dinner, but we always do remember each other with a card. So in keeping with that tradition, I decided for one of my friends birthday's this month I would make her a card and just give her a little something by filling the Matchbox Die Box with 4 Hershey Nuggets. It's not really a gift, but just a way of saying that I am thinking of her on her special day. What's also nice about the matchbox die is that is has 3 different gift tags for you to choose from right on the die.

Tip of the Day: Use coordinating cardstock and Designer Series Paper for both the card and gift box to give it that really special look. So simple, but yet so pretty. And notice, the only stamp I used on my card is the sentiment, the paper had enough pattern in it that I didn't even need to add an extra stamped image.
