Matchbook Treat Cover

I wasn't going to make any 3-D swaps for Convention, but I already had bought the candy and didn't want to eat it all myself! I kept it very simple and made a little matchbook treat.

The cardstock is 3" x 8-1/2", scored at 3/4" and 4-3/4". Fold the 3/4" flap up and add a staple. Then fold the other part down and tuck it in the stapled flap. I added the candy with a pop-up glue dot in the inside center.

Supplies: Animal Stories, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Rose Red ink & cardstock, So Saffron marker, Chocolate Chip ink & cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, Tall Tales DSP, 1-1/4" & 1-3/8" Circle Punches, Scallop Circle Punch, 1/4" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon, Stapler, Pop Up Glue Dots

Matchbox treats are always a hit. Quick and easy to make too. I'm sure it was a hit with the swappers. jmniffer
