Matchbook Halloween Treats

I brought back the super easy matchbook candies for a few Halloween projects.  
The measurements are below.
I used the pretty and not so scary Happy Halloween Stamps & Dies to decorate these two.  The background paper is the newest collection from Jen Hatfield called  Peaceful Heart


I'm going to put this one next because I used the same stamp set along with the Hocus Pocus 6 x 8 Paper Pad on this project.
This is a book style that holds 2 Ghirardelli chocolates.  The book measures 2-1/2" x 2-3/4"  Cut the cardstock to 5-3/4" x 2-3/4".  Score at 2-1/2" and 3". 

Back to matchbooks...

I made a couple of non Halloween treats because I wanted to use this pretty new paper, Peaceful Heart and the Puffy Leaf Stickers.  I cut the flowers and leaves from one of the sheets of floral paper.

Next up is Let's Be Frank from the Halloween Collection at Spellbinders.  I really like this Frankenstein and the witch hat and feet that come in this die set.

To make the matchbooks, cut the cardstock to 2-3/4" x 7-1/4"  
Score at 2-3/4", 3-1/4" and 6-1/2". 
The inside patterned paper is cut to 2-3/8" x 5-3/4".  
Score at 2-1/4", 2-1/2", 2-3/4", 5". 5-1/4" and 5-1/2".  

This has a 'w' fold on each side and is open at both the top and the bottom.  I stapled it into the matchbook and then covered the staple with patterned paper.  These matchbooks are sized for one Ghirardelli chocolate square.  If you are using a different candy, you may need to adjust the measurements.

One last treat idea...

Glassine bags are perfect for treats! These are 5-1/2" x 7-1/2" and are great for cards too. If I am hand delivering a card, I often use these instead of an envelope.

Happy Halloween!
