    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…

    2. Take mini matchboxes and wrap printer paper around them, secured with tape on the other side.
