Classroom Treats For Valentine's Day

Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge Cut Hearts and French Fry Box (inside)

My younger daughter attends school one day a week. Their Valentine's Day party is coming up soon and we wanted to make something easy and fun for her to bring to share with her classmates. This was a great Mother/Daughter project! This video shows how to assemble these little matchbook treat folders that have Mini M and M candies enclosed.

The cutting and scoring dimensions are as follows:
Matchbook Cover: Cut at 2.5" x 9.5"
                              Scored at 2.5", 3", 7", and 7.5"
AP Cricut Cartridge:
Small Hearts:  1.5"
Large Hearts: 2.25"

French Fry Box: 5.25"

If I were to make these for adults, then I would distress the edges with ink.  Second Graders aren't likely to notice that detail, so I left it off.  I think these would be great to use for 'Team Builders' or other workplace treats.  It is always nice to know that you are appreciated at work or school. :-)

All of the materials used are from Close To My Heart.  The items that are currently available are listed below, otherwise they have been retired.
