It’s time to start thinking about some Halloween treats! We made these simple matchbook treats at my Club Class last week, and I made a bunch more this weekend at a retreat. My daughter is going to give them for class treats, and to all of the teachers/aides that help with her class. I like to send a little something to the music, PE, computer teachers, etc. so that they feel a little love, too!
These are super simple! I started with a piece of cardstock measuring 3″ x 8″. If your candy is a little larger, you might have to do 3 1/2″ wide. Score at 3″, 3 1/2″ and 7″. Fold as shown below and staple your candy at the bottom, centered up on the 1″ flap. I like to “hide” the staple with a small piece of DSP, but you certainly don’t have to do that. The DSP I used is retired, so I apoligize that you can’t purchase it, but we have amazing Halloween papers each and every year. I had a ton, so I’ve been using up my stash! To make the “Spooky-Licious” version, I stamped the image TWO times in Basic Black on Whisper White cardstock. First, punch out one of your stamped images with the 2″ circle punch. On the second one, just cut out the banner and throw the rest away. Attach the banner with Dimensionals for added effect – and color the letters in Pumpkin Pie.
