Matchbook Candy Treats

I've been making some matchbook candy treats for hand-outs recently, and here are a few that I've completed. This is the cutest way to present a little piece of candy, and so much more festive than setting out a bowl of boring candy! Did I just say candy is boring?! What was I thinking?!?!
I used various colors of card stock and a whole collection of different stamps, punches and brads. These are just too stinkin' cute and I know my guests are going to enjoy taking one of these home with them when they come to visit.
Here's a close-up of one on the inside. This cute little reindeer had his nose done with a red glitter pen. It sparkles IRL, but doesn't show on the photo. Each is different on the inside for variety. If you want to create any of these yourself, you can find the tutorial here.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I wish you all a fabulous Tuesday:)
