Teacher Appreciation Time!

I just wanted to share these little matchbook chocolate holders I did for all the teachers at the kids school.  I used the Ghiradelli Chocolate squares (currently come in bags of 50 at Costco) and they were pretty quick and simple to make. 

 I finally got some good use out of my MS scoring board and it made these go pretty quickly.  I cut a strip of patterned cardstock (American Crafts) 6 1/2" long by 2" wide, and scored it at 3/4", 3 1/2", and 3 7/8", then stuck in the note, folded it up, and stapled in the chocolate.
I also had to share that I won one of the random drawings at Moxie Fab World for a copy of 350 Cards & Gifts!  It arrived today and I am so excited- so many GREAT ideas, I knew I would probably have to go buy it if I didn't win it, but it was pretty exciting to win. :-)  There are also lots of great ideas on the site that can be used for teacher appreciation, Mother's Day and any other occasion you might want to make a little something for!

I love this! My only question is what program do you use to make your cute note? I used to have PrintMaster but no longer have it. I could certainly use some insight :o)

This is SUPER cute and nothing like we have ever used with our teachers before! However, I have NO creative bone in my body, and I am not good at working with computer programs to create...would you be willing to put this on etsy or teacher pay teachers for me to purchase?
