Papercrafting - Matchbook Treats

Aren't these little matchbook treats WICKED CUTE!!!

Like the Chocolate Purses I posted about earlier, these too are so simple to make and are perfect for event favors.

Who would not love to get one of these with a sweet Lifesaver candy inside?

You can also change them up with different papers, sentiments and embellishments to suit any occasion. 

They are so quick to put together and are another great way to use up all those pesky paper scraps we have lying around. 

Supplies required:
Lifesavers or other slim pre-packaged candies, Small Glue Dots, Embellishments as needed, Cardstock, Scoring board or tool, stapler, stamps and sentiments as desired.

Cut cardstock to 1 3/4" x 5".  Score the long piece (front of cardstock facing down) at 1/2", 2 3/4" and 3".   Fold on the score lines to form the matchbook.   Decorate with images, embellishments and sentiments as desired.  Insert the candy into the small flap and staple to secure.  Be sure to staple fairly close to the bottom to insure that you can close the upper flap.  See the template below for measurement and scoring details.
I hope you will make these adorable gifts for your next event!
