Delicate Dots DSP Thank You Cards
Parisian Breeze Scallop Die Cut card



Thank you, thank you. The timing of this video couldn't of been more perfect. I tried my die last night and worked and worked with the paper. This morning I see your video and now know how to do this. Aren't the boxes the cutest things.

Thank you so much for sharing that with us Patty. I had put off ordering this little box, but now that I can see how to best utilize the card stock, I think I'll get it right away!

Jan Hoyt

thanks for the great video, Patty! I did see that tip about drawing the square on the 12x12 backing for a template but since I don't have the matchbox die (yet!) I was having trouble visualizing how it would work. Now it's crystal clear...if only I can remember it! But I know where to go for a refresher if I forget, thanks for the video. Jan Hoyt

Thanks for sharing!! I haven't used my die yet but I do have a question for you....since the extended crease pad is not available as of yet, do you feel it's necessary to even get? It seemed like you had no trouble with the folding of everything...
Thanks and I hope you have a lovely day!!

THat is so awesome! A friend and I were discussing how to get the most out of our paper and she found this! Thanks! The video really helps! You rock!


Thank you so much! I'm going to be using my die for a make and take in a week and this is definitely going to help with getting the most out of my paper. I would have wasted paper for sure.

Hi Patti,
For some reason when I clicked on the video I got the message that the video was no longer available. How can that be? You just posted it yesterday. Am I doing something wrong?

Neppie Hay

WOW!!! Patty this is such a great tip for cutting the DSP paper just the right size for this die. Thanks so much for sharing.

Charlene H.

Sheila Myers

Teri Suzuki

Just got my die and didn't get to play yet, so your video came at such a perfect time. I won't be wasting paper or trying to figure this out! Thanks Patty and Lisa! Aloha, teri

Lori Burkitt

Thank you, Patty! I really appreciate you sharing that great tip with us all!


I saw this video the other day and my new die arrived today - woo hoo! Your tip worked like a charm!

Thanks for sharing!


A great easy way to mix/match the paper for the box and the top if you want without a lot of waste.


Hi Patty. Thanks for posting that video demonstrating the matchbox die. I have been wanting to order one but wasn't sure how it would work; your visual made it go on my "must have asap" list.

One note: to avoid a step in the "pre-cutting" part of the video, you do not have to go through all the trouble of measuring and cutting the square. If you cut your piece of cardstock in "half" at the 6.5 inch mark, you will have two rectangles. One that is 5.5x12 and one that is 6.5x12. Now cut each of those at 6.5 inches according to their original measurements, and you have your four pieces of cardstock that are 5.5x6.5. The method of cutting a square in the center and marking from there did not work very well with my paper cutter, so I figured out the way to eliminate that step.

Thanks again for the awesome tutorial!


Thanks for this great tutorial! I wanted to tell you my 3 yo daughter watched it with me and clapped at the end! LOL :)

After cutting and putting together one matchbox on my own I was thrilled to see your tip on cutting out 4 pieces from of DP from one 12x12 sheet. I just want to thank you again Patty for your awesome tutorials. I will be showing this technique at my next hostess club party :-)

Jennifer Eby

You know how much wasted paper I have. Thank for the tip, no more wasting paper.


i wonder why su! doesn't come up with "plans" before releasing an item. this could certainly improve the big shot experience. done good!


Hi Patty...This is so cute! I just came from Dawn's Stampin Up blog...I have been to your blog before...but I guess I missed this post...You make it look sooo easy...I'll have to try this again...did you get that again..I've tried before...but for some reason...mine didn't come out looking as good as yours. Mine looked a little Have a spectacular GOD filled day!


Thanks Patty for sharing how to get more out of your paper. Great video!

Jane Martin
