At some point yesterday I decided I wanted to make matchbook mints. I found some online you can buy but didn't like how generic they all looked. I love making things so figured I'd just do them myself. My future hubby is a master on photoshop, so I found some general directions online regarding dimensions and told him what I wanted and where. After he got it exactly how I wanted (and I'll be the first to say I'm ridiculously anal when it comes to stuff like this) we took the file to a printing store down the street and had them printed on 8.5 x 11" cardstock (8 matchbook templates fit on one page). I've got about 60 done, 60 more to go, but just couldn't wait to post pics. I don't know why the green always turns out yellow looking on my camera, but I promise it's lime green. I got two cute silver metal trays that I'm going to put them on. I may have to go back and get one or two more though, it's starting to overflow! After everything the project cost me around $22 for 120 of them and the trays. Not too bad considering how cute I think they look! The only issue I'm having is trying to decide were to put them. I don't want to put them on the tables because I think it will clutter everything up, plus they are not the favors. Perhaps at the end of the buffet, or by the door so people can grab them as they leave? Have any other ideas?
