Welcome back to 3-D Thursday and this week it is my turn to show you a little something that I created with Fall in mind…


Further down this post you will find a link to the FREE Project Sheet that has step by step instructions & color photos that you can save to your computer or print out and have on hand for easy reference.

I decided to create little thankful gifts to hand out during Thanksgiving week and came up with this matchbook style treat holder…inside it is a single wrapped Ghiradelli Chocolate Square and there is also room to pop in a gift card if you’d like…


I wanted a leafy theme and embossed the Crumb Cake cardstock using the Layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder to give it a deep texture.  I used dies from Seasonal Layers Thinlits to create my leaves and that pretty swirly trim is shaped using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch.

Untie the Linen Thread, open it up and this is what you see…cool background paper from Painted Autumn DSP and some pretty purple leaves cut from Fresh Fig cardstock – I absolutely love that color and the contrast!


You can see that chocolate square just peeking out – it is popped into a little pocket that drops forward giving you room to stamp or write a note behind it…


Here’s a close up of what I stamped – I used a stamp from One Big Meaning and shaped it using a circle die from Stitched Shapes Framelits and popped an intricate die cut leaf behind it…


And here you can see that chocolate square sliding out – I found some fab Fall themed flavored ones at Target…


And here’s another look at the front – I stamped a sentiment using a stamp I found in the September 2017 Paper Pumpkin stamp set called Layering Leaves and it was a perfect fit for this project…
