1. Score card stock at 3/4" and 4-1/2"; fold away from scorelines.  Staple near fold line on 3/4" flap to create matchbook cover.

2. Adhere 3" x 3" DSP to large flap.

3. Stamp jar image on Very Vanilla card stock; use Big Shot and Cannery Set to cut out image.  Cut jar lid from a small piece of DSP.  Use 2-Way Glue Pen to adhere lid to jar.  Wrap linen thread around lid and tie in a bow in the front.

4. Punch ticket from More Mustard card stock; adhere to front of jar with SNAIL Adhesive.  Use Paper Piercing Tool and Stampin' Pierce Mat to punch hole in each short end of ticket; attach brads through both thicknesses of card stock.  Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere jar over DSP.

5. Use Multi-purpose Liquid Glue to adhere ribbon around bottom of matchbook; ends should meet at the center front.  Thread linen through holes in button and tie in a knot on the front.  Trim ends to about 3/8"; use Crystal Effects to adhere over ribbon ends.

6. Place Post-it notes inside matchbook cover and tuck top flap under bottom flap.

Optional:  Write name or message on ticket with Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker to make an inexpensive and thoughtful gift for a friend.
