diy: matchbox valentine party favors


I'll confess punctuality has never been one of my strong suits.
My driver's ed teacher used to tease me that I'd be late to my own funeral.


So here, on the last day of February, I have a valentine craft that I never managed to post earlier in the month.  This is my second project in my amazing #12monthsofmartha partnership.


Let's all hop in our time machines and go back a few weeks, pre-valentine parties. ;)
{Or just be realllly early for next year!}


you'll need:
empty matchboxes {I found mine at the grocery store near the toothpicks and plastic silverware}
Martha Stewart valentine scrapbook paper {obviously I used valentine paper for Valentine's Day...but change it up for any type of party or holiday}
stickers or other embellishments
glue stick
scissors/paper trimmer


and of course a variety of candies or trinkets to fill the boxes!


All you have to do to make these tiny favors is cut the paper into strips {a little bit larger than 4 x 2 inches was the perfect size} and then wrap them around the matchboxes, securing it with the glue stick.



I added another piece of scrapbook paper I trimmed to the top of each box. {I think the whole airmail theme is so clever and fun!}


Then just fill each box and they're all set for passing out at the party.
xoxo
