masculine valentine matchbook treat

I had to make my son's valentines and being 10, they had to not be too girly, but cool boy.

He wanted to give fun dip with his card, so I thought matchbook! Of course I had to come up with my own template as fun dip is bigger than your average treat measuring at 4 x 4.25 inches.

I got the idea from a UK demo, to use heart to heart punch and then line it with paper behind it. I used a retire dsp called rockabilly- loved, hoarded and sadly never used it!
I also used new pinking hearts punch-tip as it is intricate in design it tends to "jam up" just whack punch on table and it will come out.
So my measurements:
cs= 9 x 4.25 (wanted to get 2 out each sheet so I rotated fun dip sideways)
scores 1", 5 .5 and 5.75

Love the DSP adhered behind the punched image! I gave fun dip to my BF's daughters too; who doesn't love that stuff?
