Ok, a few months ago I bought online the Basic Grey matchbook set and never looked at it. Later, I bought the matchbook die for the Sizzix machine off of eBay, thinking it would be near the same size. NOPE! The Sizzix one is like a REAL matchbook, LOL, which while cute, isn't going to cut it for little mini albums as gifts. Is there a die I can buy that will make a matchbook in the larger size? I would hate to have to use my Basic Grey one as a template for each and every one, but if I have too....LOL

Thanks in advance for any and all help!

How about using it once to make a patter on something like cardstock or plastic? Then you'd have a template that's just what you want, and you could still go ahead and make the matchbook album from the Basic Grey one.

LOL, I meant I am incredibly lazy and would hate to have to cut them all BY HAND from a template made from the Basic Grey. LOL I am quite lazy plus I have arthritis in all of my joints so cutting would suuuuuuck! LOL Thanks for the reply tho, I really appreciate it!

Thanks for the links!

Actually, I thought about buying more Basic Grey kits but then I decided I wanted each one to be personalized to each person so I wanted to use different colors and papers, etc.
I have that Sizzix die, it's adorable. Unfortunately, it cuts the matchbook into the size of well, a matchbook. LOL I found a die that would be PERFECT made by AccuCut, but it's $90.00. Ummm, can't afford that! LOL Tried eBay but it wasn't even offered there. <sigh>
Thanks for the help!

I made a template for mini file folders and library pockets out of an uncut stencil sheet. The kind of thick ons, would that work? It was super easy to cut too. Mine had straight lines and I just use my paper trimmer with a fresh blade. Cut like buttah!!
