Happy HOLLYdays

Each year we have a holiday lunch for our teams at work. Since I joined the department I've made a "little something" for a table favor. This year it's the adorable little matchbook candy holder that was featured on SCS.

I used Holiday Button Bits (Papertrey Ink). However, since I was making 40 of them, I opted to not use buttons (sewing 120 buttons was a bit mutch. lol)

Instead I used 3 glue dots covered with red glitter. Soooo much easier! :o)

I stamped the holly leaves on cream cardstock and then trimmed it down (using a square template) so that the edges of the leaves hung over the edges.
The inside will hold a Ghiradelli chocolate and a computer generated note from the management team.
Did you play in the Our Craft Lounge scavenger hunt? There are awesome prizes and I can't wait to hear who won!
