Valentine's Day Matchbook Card with Treats Inside...

I am so glad this is the last of the Valentine's Day projects...
With 2 kids in special education, you have a lot of people to give to.

Of course I should  have started this days ago, but I didn't...
LOL... Why would I???
When some of my best work for school holiday projects are done the night before...
Moments like this, I just love my Cricut and
I love, love, love my daughter Justice...
For she is my glue girl... LOL
Poor girl, she helps by gluing all the little pieces on for me...
What an awesome helper...

Create A Critter
Doodle Charms
Cardstock by Recollections
Love and With Love by Recollections
Happy Days by Cardz TV
Victorian Velvet by Ranger
Score Tape
Heart Frame by EK Success

Here are my creations...

Inside of each card I had my son Daniel write his name. As you can see I used With Love and Love for mats on the inside...

I used Score Tape to hold the bag of goodies, candies down to the card, as with young children, and special needs children, staples, string and brads and other closures may not be the best,  or the easiest for them to open or safest thing for them. 
So score tape works best... A big Thank you to the Scrapbooking Queen for shipping me my order super fast, she saved my project... woo HOO!
Check out her store on Facebook...

I made a total of 3 designs for the matchbook card. A turtle (because we have a turtle)...

A heart with wings...

Or a peanut with a top hat...
