Some chocolate in a cute little Matchbook holder that would be a perfect sweet treat to set at each place setting on your Thanksgiving table.

You can theme it for any occasion making it perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas and even weddings and showers…you open the front cover to reveal a pocket inside that is perfectly sized to hold an individually wrapped Ghirardelli chocolate square – if you prefer you could put in a snack sized Hershey bar or similar…and under that there is room for a sentiment too…

Please read on for more details, the link to the printable tutorial showing you how to make this and details of this week’s Blog Candy…

I themed my Matchbook for Thanksgiving and wanted it to match my card that I made yesterday and plan to make one of both for each place setting on our table – inside mine I put a Ghirardelli Pecan Pie chocolate square – they have some delicious seasonal flavors right now including this and Eggnog and Peppermint Bark – yum!!!

For my base I used Cajun Craze and textured my front cover using the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder – I added a Scallop Trim Border using Early Espresso and trimmed it with Early Espresso Grosgrain Ribbon.

I stamped my leaves using a stamp from the set Day of Gratitude that you can find in the Holiday Mini Catalog and layered it on my cover using Dimensionals.  The front cover slips just inside the bottom flap – open it up and this is what is inside…

A pocket to hold your chocolate!  I made mine using More Mustard cardstock and again textured it using that embossing folder.  I stamped my leaf again using a stamp from Day of Gratitude and layered it on – and as you can see, a Ghirardelli chocolate square fits perfectly in that pocket…

The pocket is not attached to the back cover and only attached to the little flap at the front, meaning that you can use it just like a card – to write or stamp a sentiment…and this is what I did using that beautiful sentiment from Day of Gratitude – I stamped it onto Very Vanilla and punched it out using my large Oval Punch adding it to yet another embossing layer…

I just love this stamp set – I didnt receive it until last Friday and now I can’t stop using it – the designs are just gorgeous!  And it’s not too late to order this set to get it in time for Thanksgiving projects…I promise you will love it!

    Sarah, this is just the cutest. Wouldn’t they be adorable at each place setting either for Thanksgiving or Christmas? You did an awesome job designing this (thanks for the tutorial). Previously won the Day of Gratitude stamp set so need get busy and ink it up. Thanks for the chance at your awesome blog candy!

    Thanks for the tutorial – the pocket makes the difference! I made the matchbook holder last year for the Ghiradelli chocolate but ended up stapling it to it. This is much sweeter! Ha – pun intended! Think I will stop at the store tomorrow to get some of that chocolate – I don’t think I have tried the Pecan Pie or the Eggnog so I have to make these for the office before I eat them all! Maybe even make them for Thanksgiving if they last that long! Definitely a delicious blog candy treat! Thanks for sharing your talent!
