Have wanted to make the Matchbook Ghirardelli candy treat holders for Christmas using the pattern with the inside pocket for this year and so today I made some:
Usually make the Matchbook treat holders for Christmas and I would use a solid card stock base so that out of a sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 card stock I will get 4 holders. But this year I wanted to use printed card stocks and scraps from my stash for my holders so I had to re-figure my pattern for each holder.
For each Matchbook treat holder I used a piece of solid or double sided printed card stock cut:
7 3/8 x 2 3/4
Score on the 7 3/8 side at: 3, 3 1/2, and again at 6 3/4
Crease all score lines with a bone folder and set aside.
For the inside pocket:
5 3/4 x 2 3/8
Score this on 5 3/4 side at: 2 1/4, 2 1/2, 2 3/4, and 5, 5 1/4, and 5 1/2
I used 1/8 wide tear and tape to put the pocket together after I scored all the lines.
I put the pocket inside the Matchbook treat holder and stapled them together at the bottom of the holder. To cover the staple on the treat holder front I added washi tape to each holder:
This is an opened holder to show the inside pocket that holds the Ghirardelli candy:
Used holiday punches to decorate some of the fronts of the Matchbook treat holders and for others I used this circle greeting piece - the "merry wishes" is a stamp from Morningstar Stamps and I used red ink for that. Used a circle punch to cut that out and used a scallop punch for the red scallop behind the stamped piece.
Will add the candies the week of Christmas but for now I have a stack of the treat holders ready to go:
