Quick Valentine's Mini-Gift: A Matchbook M&M's Packet

Need a last minute Valentine's Day mini gift?  Make a few of these Matchbook M&M's Packets and you can pass them out as you walk down the hall at work.  Or give them to your kids to pass out to their friends and teachers.  I created these fun matchbook M& M's packets with my stamping club this weekend but tomorrow my daughter needs a few little gifts for the teachers and staff at her preschool.  So I created a few of these matchbook M&M's packets in about 5 minutes and had her sign the inside of them.  Valentine's Gifts Done!
A Valentine's Day Matchbook

Inside of matchbook
  • take a sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" card stock
  • on the 8 1/2" side of the card stock, score at the following lengths - 3/4", 4 1/4" and 5"
  • on the 11" side of the card stock, cut every 2 3/4"; this will give you 4 pieces of card stock already scored
  • fold on the score lines
  • staple a mini M&M's packet or Skittles packet inside; place your staple on the 3/4" flap at the bottom of your card stock
  • add a 2 1/2" x 3 1/4" DSP or card stock layer, some ribbon, stamped images and/or punched out layers to add a fun look
  • pass out to friends, family and/or classmates and enjoy the smile that comes across their face :)
