Diva Coffee Break Challenge

Hi there Stampers! Thanks for stopping by!

Today I decided to play along with the Divas over at the DCBC blog. This week's challenge really wasn't much of a challenge because I use my Big Shot ALL THE TIME!

My daughter had an Easter themed party with her Brownie troop and I needed something little but cute to give to her two troop leaders. What's better than chocolate than chocolate dressed up really cute?!
I started by running some of my left over Delicate Dots DSP from the Sale-A-Bration catalog through with the Sizzix Bigz XL Matchbox Die that's new in the Occasions Mini catalog. I quickly and easily put the matchboxes together using just one little piece of Sticky Strip for the box lid, as the bottom requires no adhesive at all! Next I stamped my bunny from the new Eight Great greetings also from the Occasions Mini in Black Stazon and colored him in with my SU Markers. I punched him out with my Wide Oval Punch and layered him on a Scallop Circle punched out of more Delicate Dots DSP. The So Saffron ribbon is also from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. Inside I wrapped two Ghiradelli chocolate squares in Delicate Dots DSP and added a die cut egg from the green sized Sizzix Eggs Die after running it through with a Cuttlebug Embossing folder. I think it turned out super cute and it was so easy!

Stamps: Eight Great Greetings Ink: Black Stazon, SU Markers Paper: Delicate Dots DSP (SAB)WW, So Saffron Accessories: Sizzix Eggs Die, Sizzix Bigz XL Matchbox Die, SO Saffron Ribbon (SAB), Wide Oval Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Sticky Strip, Dimensionals

Hope you have a super day!


  1. This is a super cute project! I really need to get this die out and use it. :) Thanks for sharing...SO cute!

  2. Very cute! Love the little matchboxes. I have a regular Sizzix die that creates a matchbook, but you can't fit any delicious chocolate in those, so it won't work for this project. I am resisting purchasing the Big Shot, but I might cave one of these days. :)

  3. This is just adorable! What a great, fast way to give a sweet little gift! Maybe I do need that die! :) Thanks for playing with us Divas!

  4. Lovely!!! What a great idea!!!

  5. Fantastic idea! Very cute, lucky Brownie leaders. Thanks for playing along.
