DIY Valentine’s Day Andes Mint Matchbox

Back in November I shared a Now, Wow, or Holy Cow video and free tutorial download with you featuring my Andes Mints Matchboxes. WOW! You guys went CRAZY for them and that made my heart very happy. If you missed the video, CLICK HERE to view it.

Last night over on YouTube, I did a YouTube LIVE (my first YouTube Live – eek!) and it was a blast! I hope you enjoy creating along with me in this video.

Today I wanted to show you the Valentine version of the Andes Mint Matchbox. We still have time until the big lovey-dovey day so you have time to create this sweet gift! They are easy, affordable, and all you need are a few basic supplies.

The box I want to show you today is just a little bit different than my original. I made a cover for my mints. Since they are green and green isn’t very Valentiney, I created a fun little flap for them (measurements are listed below).
