DON'T YOU HATE IT WHEN...?!!!!

Hello again, friends and families!!!

I've been frantically working at trying to complete a cut.file to do a project for you today.  However, I am not doing as well as expected with the cut.file!!!  For the life of me, I can't get it right and so it's cutting horribly.  Well, to keep from becoming too frustrated (Inever would get it if that happened), I decided to take a break, and the hubby and I went out to grab a quick bite to eat.  On our way home, I had a particle of food in my tooth which was driving me crazy and not a toothpick anywhere!!!  Don't you just hate it when something you normally wouldn't think about carrying in your your purse, like a toothpick or a cotton swab, is something you may need?!!!  Sooooo..., before I even got out the car and back in the door, I had an idea for this quick project to share with you.  My hubby thought my mad dash from the car was due to an upset stomach!!!  LOL!!!  Silly hubby, he should know me by now!!!

It's a matchbook holder for toothpicks and cotton swabs that you can tuck in your purse.

The outside front:


The inside:



Isn't it cute?!  Handy too!  And, it's definitely going straight in my purse (now I'll probably never have the need for one again!!!)  LOL!!! Sure wish I'd had this with me 2 hours ago!!!

The matchbook inside has double pockets: one for the toothpicks and one for the swabs.  I put it together by hand in about 10 minutes -- took longer for the Stickles to dry!

Okay, now that I've put this together super-fast and shared it with you, I'll use one of the swabs for this pesky inner-ear itch and get  back to working on that stubborn cut.file.

I'll be seeing you!

Wow that is really a clever idea. I also need band aids for others always, so this would work for them to.
GREAT idea sweetie!

What a great idea! I am always scared to put pretty things in my purse for fear they will be smashed to bits, but I may have to consider something like this!

Sheila aka SassyLady said...

Great idea, we all have the same problem. This is a great looking answer. Sweet idea.

This is a nice idea. Come to think of it I purchased Alphalicious last weekend and one of the cuts is a mintbook. I guess we were thinking alike. Hugs!
