Craft fair idea matchbook chocolates

On my recent trip to Frankfurt I had a LONG wait in the airport and so as you do, I wandered around the shops. I knew I dare not go home without a small gift for Alexia, not that she's spoilt she just likes to have things from other countries. So killing two birds with one stone I saw the packs of Ritta Sport. Cute square shaped chocolate in bite size portions ...perfect for a video ...sorry I meant perfect for Alexia !!

So my project today is a matchbook style holder, nothing new there are a gazillion images on Pinterest. I love the idea as its simple and easy so I figured the measurements to fit my chocolate and went from there.

I chose the Petal garden designer series paper as I love the soft feminine look and the colour palette of the pack is just beautiful. Avoiding just pink ... hard for me to do ... I chose the pale blue as my background.

Further decorated with just a small sentiment, tiny flower, ribbon and a few pearls the white card stock is transformed into a great gift. perfect for craft fairs, teacher gifts... you know the mantra I am sure. You can make these just because. Just try NOT to eat all the chocolates and then have to go out and buy more !!..

Such and easy project to make , all the items used are listed below and I have also done a step by step tutorial for you to follow along to. So grab a brew,  get comfy and enjoy the video. Don't forget to click like and subscribe
