Last Minute FAST Valentine Treats

I just had to make something fun for some friends for Valentine's Day.  Last Chance!  Tuesday is Valentine's Day!


Real Red - 7 3/8" x 2 3/4" - score at 3", 3 1/2" 6 3/4"

With the 8 1/2" edge at the top of your trimmer, cut at 7 3/8".  Without turning the paper, score at 3", 3 1/2" and 6 3/4"

Turn 1/4 turn and cut into 2 3/4" widths.  You should end up with four.

Whisper White - 5 3/4" x 2 3/8"

With the 8 1/2" edge to the top, cut at 5 3/4".  Without turning the paper, score at 2 1/4", 2 1/2" 2 3/4", 5", 5 1/4" and 5 1/2"

Turn and cut into 2 3/8" widths.  You'll have four.

Stamp as shown below:


Add a small amount of "green glue" or tear and tape.

Slide into the small fold on the Real Red matchbook.and staple into the bottom.

Decorate the front with 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" DSP and Sweetheart Punched hearts.
To cover the staple, use a 2 1/2" x 3/8" strip.

Simple as can be!

Thank you for looking in today - Happy Monday...

  1. How fun! I have made the matchbook treat holders but then you have to staple or use a glue dot to hold the treat in place. I like this little pocket in there. Fun! Plus, you have a bonus spot for a sentiment or to write something. Great idea. Thanks for all the photos and directions! Did everyone like their chick/hen cards on Saturday? The photos were sure cute!

    1. They LOVED the chicken cards. Be sure to check my post from Sunday to see some pictures and the alternate card Brittney made.

      I've seen several ways to make this matchbook and combined several to get my end result. I think the pocket part came from Dawn Griffith.
