My family and I had a great time...Always brings a smile to my face to see my boys having a great time, and of course who doesn't want to add the excitement of sparklers :)

I made a Matchbook card.
Cut the sheet of paper in half lengthwise at 4 1/4 in. , this will make 2 cards.
Stamp along the top flap, fold the top flap down and the bottom flap up. You can also stamp the flaps while folded so the image will be on top and bottom flaps. Press the folds with the bone folder the smooth them out
Attach ribbon on the inside of the bottom flap. Hold the bottom flap closed and punch holes for eyelets, then add eyelets. You want the holes to go all the way through to the back of the card and low enough so that the front of the card can still be lifted up, DON"T put the hole through the front of the card or you won't be able to open it.
Pop up matted image across front on the top flap. And finish off with another ribbon knotted to the other.
