Silhouette Curio Button Box Matchbox

Printables.
Simplified sketch pen version.
Papercraft sewing accessories are some of my favourite things to make - they are useful and giftable. I am looking forward to attending The Knitting & Stitching Show next week (Oct 7-11, Ally Pally, London) - so my crafty thoughts have turned to stitchery. Can't wait to see the creative exhibitions - and add to my ribbon stash.

These Button Box Matchboxes are sized to fit on a Silhouette Curio machine. The Curio has a petite cutting area because it concentrates on its other powerful creative capabilities - such as embossing, stippling, and cutting heavier materials. (You can also make it on a Silhouette Cameo or Portrait - if that is the machine you have. Or even cut it out by hand if you have not gone digital yet.)

I have made a print-and-cut version of the design and also a simplified version, suitable for the Sketch Pen feature on all Silhouette machines.

Your matchbox consists of a drawer and the wrap. Cut the matchbox drawer out of plain coloured paper. The drawer pulls are brads. 

You can tweak the colours and make several for a colour-coded button stash!
