Halloween Candy Matchbook

A unique Halloween project.


  1. Cut a 2 x 5 ¾” piece of Summer Sun cardstock and score vertical lines along the horizontal edge at 2 ¼, 2 ¾ and 5 ¼ inches.  Fold on the scored lines as shown. Unfold and fold up just the small flap and staple 1/8” from the folded edge.
  2. Stamp Crystal Pattern in Memento Morocco on the top flap of the matchbook. Highlight the edges using a sponge dauber with Memento Love Letter and Elderberry inks.
  3. Stamp “happy halloween” in VersaFine Onyx Black and heat emboss with Clear Embossing Powder on the inside. Attach a piece of chocolate with temporary adhesive. Stamp “trick or treat” in VersaFine Onyx Black on watercolor paper and heat emboss with clear powder. Watercolor with Memento markers, trim and mat with black cardstock. Attach the stamped banner to the bottom, stapled flap.
  4. Stamp the mouse on watercolor paper with VersaFine Onyx Black and heat emboss with Clear Embossing Powder. To color the image, scribble ink from the Memento markers on a plastic palette and transfer the ink with a damp paintbrush.  Trim the images separately (spider and mouse) with scissors.
  5. Tint a small piece of wire with StazOn Jet Black. This will be substituted for the stamped thread that attaches the spider to the hat.
     
  6. Glue the tinted wire to the mouse’s hat and then attach the spider at the opposite end. Adhere the embellishment to the front of the matchbook with dimensional foam.
