Matchbook

Today on the Practical Scrappers blog our challenge was to use staples. I decided to add extra photos to my layout with staples, but just didn't want to staple them to my page, so I created a matchbook to add these wallet sized photos in:

 
Here are a few close ups:

Here is how I made my matchbook:
 
Cut cardstock 6 1/4" x 3 6/8"
Score at 3/4", 3 3/4", 3 7/8" and fold.
Punch holes, I used my 1/8" eyelet setter, on the bottom flap through the back layer also. Use ribbon and tie a bow. You can add eyelets, but the ribbon does cover the holes.
Print wallet size photos (2 1/2" x 3 1/4") stack them neatly and staple the bottom flap and photos to the back of the matchbook.
Tuck the top  flap under the stapled bottom flap.
Decorate/ embellish as desired
 
Hope you enjoyed my tutorial!
Have a great day!
