Winter Matchbook Candy Holder

Hello dear friends,

Today I will show you a cute matchbook candy holder.
I offered one to everyone one of my guests at a diner that I gave.
I made about 25 of them altogether. And needless to say , my guests loved them.



Here's a link where it gives you the instructions on how to make one if you are interested.

It's by Theresa Momber

Score at : 3", 3 1/2" and 6 3/4".

Cut a pc. 5 3/4" x 2 3/8" of Very Vanilla CS.
Score at 2 1/4", 2 1/2",2 3/4", 5", 5 1/4" and 5 1/2".

1 pc. 2 1/4" x 2 1/4" Old Olive CS
1 pc. 2" x 1 5/8" Old Olive CS

1 pc. 1/2" x 2 5/8" DSP Merry Moments from SU.

Stamps: Christmas Punch ( hostess Level 2 ) kit and Season of Joy.

Inks: Choclate Chip and Old Olive.

Accessories :

Tag punch, Old Olive 1/4" ribbon, 2 gold brads, sticky strip, dimensionals, and snail.

It's real easy to make and it makes a cute little gift.
Don't forget the chocolate...lol
If you can't find the Ghirardelli chocolate, you can use an After Eight mint chocolate.

Here's another one done in different colors.

Thank you for looking and have fun making your own.

Happy crafting and stamping all :)
