Easter Matchbook Treat Holder

Here's another candy holder I created for Easter, this time using the matchbook style. It's so quick and easy, anyone can do it. I can't take credit for coming up with this, I got the idea here on Andrea's blog and modified it to suit my needs. Again, this could be used any time of year, I just find these colours Easter-y. Once the flap is opened it shows the candy (PS. Since when did they start making dark chocolate Mini Eggs?). I didn't want the staple at the bottom showing as in the tutorial so I staped the candy in and then covered the 1" flap with the bashful blue paper to hide it!

This project features 3 products from the SAB catalogue (the Yummy stamp set, Delicate dots dp, and 5/8" so saffron grosgrain ribbon). Order before March 31 to get yours!

Supplies:

Stamps: SU Yummy
Ink: SU so saffron, bashful blue, certainly celery markers
Paper: SU so saffron, bashful blue, ww, delicate dots dp
Ribbon: SU 5/8" so saffron grosgrain ribbon
