Matchbook tiny treat holder

Hi folks! This little matchbook is large enough to hold a small chocolate or sweetie. I used a stamp from Joanna Sheen's Country life collection and it's one from the 'Smell the Roses' plate.
The papers are by Papermania. I over stamped the vines (also from the stamp set) on the green softly polka-dotted paper on the inside of the matchbook. I used my rectangle and scalloped rectangle Nestabilities to die cut the mats and layers. The tiny plastic flowers are from an embellishment pack the I sourced from 'The Works'. I added some self adhesive pearls to the centres.
The little sentiment is from the Papermania set. I held the little matchbook together with some large brads. I finished it off with some ribbon tied in a knot. The instructions for making the matchbook are here.
Hope you are enjoying this glorious sunshiny day.
Ciao for now!

Love this project Sandra - great gift idea (maybe a diamond ring would fit in there too)!! The Matchbook is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside.

This is gorgeous Sandra. It looks like it'd be perfect for putting a gift card in for i-tunes or some such. I love the way you've overstamped the papers, they are beautiful.
