Matchbook Treats

Here is a small sampling of some of the matchbook treat holders I made this Christmas. Some were donated to a local organic store for sales, some were given in gift bags and some were handed out to people like grocery store employees, the greeters at stores, etc. I enjoy making them and it's a great way to use up snippets of card stock and designer paper. I made many more items that I didn't even take photos of, but at least I did take this one :) They all hold a little candy bite and the recipients seem to enjoy them.

I'm sharing these with the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - anything goes

Repeat Impressions Anything Goes challenge #D2618

I hope your Christmas was wonderful. Ours was very nice, but by the time we got home, we both just fell into bed exhausted!

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a great day-after-Christmas. Enjoy the leftovers and great sales today :)

Edit: For those who ask questions and leave no way for me to contact you, I can only say the tutorial for "Matchbook Candy Holders" can be found at Splitcoaststampers. com

Morning and Merry christmas.

Carol, would you be prepared to share your recipe as these would make lovely "thank you" gifts for children at my local kids hospital to give to the nurses and family.

Thank you in anticipation. Mal, Melbourne, Australia
