It’s true that all things tiny are cute. Especially little paper matchboxes with a lid that slides. The fun part is deciding what to put inside.
This Matchbox diecut from Quickutz makes it easy and fun to make these little boxes. You can also make them with a template like this one. Once you have the shape cut out, all you need to do is fold it all up.
This little box is the perfect size for tootsie rolls, gumballs or my personal favorite…lemon heads.
Four little tootsie rolls packed like pickles.
To make the paper watermelons, all you need is a small paper circle cut in half. I used regular old craft paint, glitter and tiny black beads for the watermelon seeds.
These little boxes make for a fun way to welcome guests to a dinner party or a fancy indoor picnic.
