Ali Manno shows off a secretive DIY inspired by the signature mystery movie, "Matchmaker Mysteries: A Killer Engagement."


  • Scrapbook paper - Cardstock Weight
  • Metal brads
  • 3 1/2” hole punch
  • 1-hole handheld punch
  • Scissors
  • Paint pens or Metallic Sharpie
  • Optional:
  • 1” hole punch
  • 2” hole punch
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • School glue stick


1. Punch one 3 1/2” circle out of piece of scrapbook paper. Then punch another two circles the same size out of a contrasting piece of scrapbook paper.

2. Line up the two matching circles on top of each other and cut about 1/2” to the side of the center.

3. Flip one circle onto the other so that they make a full circle with an overlap in the center.

4. Line up that circle onto the remaining whole circle so that you have two circles that are the exact same size.

5. Use your handheld 1-hole punch to punch through the top where all 3 layers overlap.

6. Feed the tails of your metal brad through the hole, spread them as wide as possible and fold each tail over. Pinch to add tension.

To create the ladybug:

1. Punch a 2” circle out of black cardstock and hot glue it to back side of your note, where the brad is.

2. Add the antennas by cutting two “C” shapes out of black cardstock and using your school glue stick to adhere them to the back of your ladybug’s head.

3. Use your 1” punch to make a bunch of ladybug spots out of black cardstock. Use your school glue stick to glue them on as you desire.

4. Use a paint pen to write a note and enjoy!
