Sweet treats are the bee’s knees during special times of the year and these delightful little S’mores Kits of talented friend Lauren Elise Crafted made for a special feature for us will be sure to please! From Lauren :: these all-in-one kits make things easy for your gift recipients because the kit includes everything to make yummy mini s’mores. Just light the candle, toast the marshmallow, sandwich the ingredients together and you have a perfect treat! This is a fairly easy DIY and no special tools are needed to craft the boxes.
I am looking forward to decorating and playing the role of hostess and as hostess, I feel the need to give my guests a little something special. These kits are perfect! I can leave these little treats in our guest rooms and my family can enjoy s’mores bites after our big meal…
box of kitchen matches, 250 count || tacky glue || vintage book pages and graph paper || x-acto knife || bone folder || Kraft paper || paper doily || small manila shipping tag || needle and blue thread || letter stamp and blue ink || three matches || red and white baker’s wine || one tea light candle || graham crackers || wood skewers || mini marshmallows || chocolate bar
Step 1. remove matches from the box and slide out the bottom piece of the box. Glue vintage book pages to the outside and bottom with tacky glue.
Step 2. use Kraft paper to conceal the labels on the box. Do not cover up the match-strike surface. Glue down Kraft paper with tacky glue.
Step 3. glue a piece of vintage book paper and graph paper to the top of the box with tacky glue.
Step 4. cut a piece of a paper doily down to size so that it covers part of the box. Set aside.
Step 5. glue a manila shipping tag to the box top with tacky glue.
Step 6. glue the paper doily on top of the shipping tag and other papers.
Step 7. stitch a needle and blue thread through the box for added detail. To make it easier, pre-punch holes in the box with the needle before hand.
Step 8. stamp a date and message onto the shipping tag and graph paper.
Step 9. for filling the box, take three matches and tie together with baker’s twine. Take two quarters of a graham cracker and tie together with blue thread. Embellish with a book page tag if desired. Place the graham crackers, tea light candle and matches into the box.
Step 10. place four mini marshmallows onto a wood skewer. Cut down the skewers to fit within the box if needed. Place the skewered marshmallow in the box.
Are you hosting family or friends this year? These little treats would be perfect to gift to them!
