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 really like to make stuff: food, cards, scrapbooks, sewing projects, crafts, etc, but finding the time to actually DO those things without neglecting my home, husband, and kids is difficult! I love Dr. Pepper with a passion, and my husband Sam too! (and I use way too many exclamation points when typing!)
