A Matchbook Treat Holder

December 24, 2011

There is a challenge at Late Night Stampers this week to use Blue, White and Silver on your creation.  I decided to use a tutorial which I have from Class in a Flash to make a little treat holder for my grandchildren to go under the tree.  Just a little bit of fun.

I used Night of Navy card stock to create the basic matchbook.   The photo doesn’t really show it well, but there is a Round Treat Cup in the centre of the embossed cardstock which is where I will be adding my treat.   I used a combination of Whisper White and Silver Glimmer Paper to decorate the box.   I also used a variety of punches – Full Heart, 1 1/4″ Circle, 1″ Circle, 1 3/4″ Circle, Scallop Trim Border Punch as well as the Circle Scissors to create my 3″ circle.  I also used the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder to add a little texture.  The greeting comes from the Perfect Punches stamp set and I used Night of Navy ink to stamp it.   I just need to find something to add to the Treat cup.  I am thinking Red Smarties or M&M’s would look fantastic.  The little matchbook opens and the treat holder swings out so that the treat can be eaten without destroying the holder.

I can’t wait for Christmas morning to see my grandchildren’s faces and hear their excitement about what Santa brought them.

Bye for now, Kris.
