I just wanted to share a quick project with you. Once a month we have a women’s Bible study at my church. We have dinner together and have a lesson. A few our ladies decorate each month using a different theme. I decided several months ago that I’d like to make favors for our meetings so each lady has something to take home as a reminder of the meeting. I will be sharing these with you each month as I make them. All of that being said – This is my LEAST favorite I’ve made so far! I had some issues this week and ended up in the dentist’s chair with 2 root canals in one day….YIKES! I hate the dentist worst than almost anything so I wasn’t too thrilled about that. Anyway, I was in pain before I went and kinda sore after, and I had put off making the goodies (my own fault!), so I wasn’t giving it 100%.
The theme this month is FIESTA. I decided, since it’s been really cold this week, to do a matchbook that holds a packet of cocoa. I tried to make them match the colorful theme. Once I got them cut and ready to assemble, I had crafter’s block and could not figure out how to embellish them at all. I finally just left them sorta plain. They are ok, but I know they could be better! I love the idea of these matchbook holding a pouch of something, so I’m sure I’ll make them again some time. Here they are.
Here’s the inside:
I made several different colors. What would you have done to embellish them? I’d love to hear your ideas and suggestions!
