Valentine Matchboxes

Here is a cute little Valentine box. I was inspired by a Pinterest post here. It's made from a matchbox and will hold anything tiny like tic-tacs, redhots or Altoids.  I made it in about 5 minutes. Seriously.
Here's what you need:
Double-stick tape
Wrapping paper or scrapbook paper
Plastic stick-on hearts
Cinnamon Red Hots, Altoids or Tic-tacs

Cut paper to fit around the matchbox. Fasten with double-stick tape.  Put stick on heart on front. (You could put anything on there really.) Fill with candy.  Give to someone you love.  Done. 
How easy was that???

Wayward Weekend
