Matchbook Love DIY

February 12, 2009

Pink and red. Pink and red. Pink and red. It’s everywhere I go so why not put a p & r on decor8 today. Inchmark has a super adorable and easy DIY project so here you go. A little love fix from me to you.


Don’t forget to notice the pink and red m&m’s and candy corns. Where are people finding candy corns like that? HELP me please. I need those things, not for my figure, but for the sheer cuteness of placing pink and red candy corns in a bowl in my entryway. Adore!

    P.S. It’s called Cupid Corn.
    My husband bought some Christmas candy corn from The Chocolate Tree for the holidays and it is so much better than the store bought. He’s going to have to treat me on Sat. for the Cupid Corn.

    I think that I saw pink and/or red candy corns at WinCo.

    I think I saw some at my local grocery store, Stop & Shop, the other day. Hope you find them!

    They have the pink candy corn in a clear tub at wal-mart stores, in the valentine candy aisle. (I’ve worked my way through two tubs already! With help of course…) It IS pretty!

    Just go down the Valentines candy aisle of any store. They have the pink stuff. Brachs makes it. Although any color other than orange kind of grosses me out for some unknown reason. Lol.

    This is so cute! This would have been perfect for my daughters’ Valentine’s Day parties at school instead they painted red hearts that I cut out- certainly DIY- but (since they are 5 and 3) they were not as cute! Where do you find blank matchboxes?

    I love matchboxes! Thanks for sharing! I have made little matchboxes full of cut out words for gifts and even little books to go in matchboxes–they are so fun!

    I hope they have the ubiquitous cinnamon hearts. One of my favourites.

    I love the children’s illustrations on some of them. Very cute.

    Can you still get matchboxes?

    Love this! I was looking for something romantic and sweet to do for my husband. Think I’ll give these a try! It would be so easy to add little love-note tags.

    These are just too adorable!!! It’s too late for me to find time to make these for Valentine’s day so I’ll have to come up with an excuse to make them. :)

    I’m amazed, and delighted!! Valentine’s candy aisles?????

    These are a great DIY project. We did another version once to announce a new baby. I still have a big box full of leftover matches-seven years later! We will have to get rid of those in some bonfires this summer.

    Those are darling. I will have to keep those in mind for valentines for my daughters class next year!


    BTW: I spotted similar candy corn at Michaels craft supply store.

    I go to Marshells for stuff like this! They always have gourmet candies and such… Be careful for stale candy…
