I am very interested in this swap! I have 2 questions though...

When is the due date?

Is there a template or measurements and instructions so that I make them correctly?

I have a real sweet tooth so this is a good one for me!

I'll be waiting for a responce...

Sorry it is due October 5th!

As far as a template I do not really have one.
I can try and tell you how I do it...

take a 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper and hold it in front of you portrait style. cut about a 3" strip. So first strip 3" width x 11" long.

Then take the bottom and fold up about an inch.
I take my ribbon that I will use and match the fold to match the ribbon. The Ribbon will be used to cover this piece!

Now you will need to staple your treat in at the bottom portion and then you will know how high up to fold. About 4" and then fold over about 1/2" then fold the top back down. You will probably need to trim some off the bottom to make it fit perfectly!
I hope this helps!

Miriam

I want to sign up for each of them. I do have 1 question though, does the treat inside have to be edible? Like I bought some rhinestone stickers that were packaged this way.

The treat has to be holiday or season themed... treat is a treat so no edible is not necessary!

thanks for the explanation, I always end up asking a ton of questions, cause once I start thinking about it, I get confused. The other day I called my husband from the Walmart parking lot, because I started thinking about the gear I was going to put my car in. Once I started to think about it, I was afraid I was doing it wrong.

someone had asked earlier for a pattern or template.
http://www.jersgirl.com/templates/matchbook_c andycover_...

That is a basic one. Depending on the size of what ever you are putting in, you would need to change it a bit.

Hi Everyone, ColbyCheeseCat Would be so happy if we can extend each group by 1. So you would make 7 of each except for FALL. If you would be so kind you would get 7 back! Please let me know and if you say yes I will put a 7 by your name!!

Thanks so much! If you cannot THAT IS OKAY TOO! WE still are so happy you are here!! So no worries!!

I just finished mine but will probaby wait a few weeks to mail. I found this design by DG Perry of the Bo Bunny Team and thought it would be perfect for the matchbook. Inside of matchbook will of course be filled with kisses.

I'm doing Lipton soup. You could do tea, gourmet coffee, nuts. I was looking for a template for my soup mix. I think I will try this one.

Template

Plan to go shopping tomorrow so I can get started.

Hi Miriam! Would it be ok to send in a place marker for myself in the fall group? Because of the candle tarts they are quite bulky so it would save us both on shipping
