  1. Great video, Mary! I love how you threaded the Bermuda Bay ribbon through the back of the matchbook. Clever!

  2. This just has to be one of those CASE projects that I will come back to OVER and OVER again. Thanks for sharing the measurements with us.

  3. Another great video! Thanks for the instructions and tips on your fabulous matchbox card.

  4. Thank you for this video Mary, this project is so easy to do and just so beautiful too. I love how you threaded the ribbon, looks perfectly finished this way.

  5. Thank you for your kind comments. They mean so much. I had a thought after I published this. If you cut the card stock by 3″ vs. 3 1/8″, then it’s easier to place the ribbon holes in a line (ruler) at 1″ and 2″.

  6. Absolute perfection… so crisp and clean.

    So glad I watched the video. The way you did the ribbon is such a great idea! I have made these cards before and I guess I don’t remember how I decorated the very bottom and make it so the little flap stays in. I think the ribbon is a great way to assure it stays closed! Love it! Much better than trying to use a glue dot or green glue to adhere the ribbon on the back. thanks Mary! Like they say, you can learn something everyday!

  8. Love it. I like because it simple but gorgeous not a lot of hearts etc. Thank you for sharing. ALWAYS learn something new from you.

  9. Love reading the feedback. Thank you, Sandi!

  10. Such a pretty gift card! Thanks for sharing. I, too, have had cracking when using the thick Whisper White cardstock. I usually don’t use a bone folder on it, but sometimes a project needs a crisper fold. Any suggestions? You do a fabulous job with videos and provide such easy-to-follow directions.

  11. Hi K. If you need a crisp fold, I would use the bone folder any way. If it gets a little “furry,” use a fine sanding block on the edge to clean it up. Good? M

  12. Mary, I am a fellow demonstrator just getting started with attempting to create my own video. I was wondering what editing program you used for your videos and if you might have any advice for me starting up.

    I love you blog and videos and your style of stamping.


  13. Really cute project. I love how you threaded the ribbon through the back. Thanks for the inspiration.
