Those mini matchbox favors from Christmas have been laying around (I’m really bad at cleaning up old craft projects!) and I thought we could use them to make something fun for Valentine’s day. These we’re a perfect match boxes are filled with something sweet inside that won’t actually strike a fire. See how we made them after the jump…
1. Start with a box of Strawberry Pocky sticks (one of my favorite treats!!) and cut them off so they show a touch of the pink top. Can’t find Pocky sticks around? Try pretzel sticks dipped in red tinted white chocolate
2. Take mini matchboxes and wrap printer paper around them, secured with tape on the other side.
3. Stamp with a mini stamp set (like this one) and decorate if you’d like
4. Fill with your mini ‘matches’ and give to your sweet Valentine, or make a whole bunch for your kid’s classroom!
