[project] mini cookie matchbox

Elle and I made these for Valentine's Day to give to her cousins and friends. I think mini or tiny projects are perfect when you need to create can be faster to put together and mini always seems to be cute.

For these, we die cut and assembled the matchboxes several days before we made the cookies. Because the matchbox has an inside piece that slides in and out of a cover, we were even able to tie the ribbon around the box and still access the inside later. Valentine's morning we made small sugar cookies (they were less than 1 inch in diameter) and put two in a mini cupcake wrapper. We placed the cookies in the box, slid on the cover, and they were ready to deliver.

Overall, I really like how they turned out. I tend to prefer soft sugar cookies but thought a crisp cookie would work best for this project. Next time, I think I'll experiment with other crisp sugar cookie recipes to find one I really like.
