Kids' Christmas Crafts: Matchbox Gifts

"The littler the better" is the philosophy of these presents -- and it's easy to make a bunch quickly. Kids can give them to friends and classmates, adding a small treat, such as a holiday note, candy, or trinket.
Matchboxes are available in bulk at grocery or discount stores. For a standard-size matchbox, cut a 33/4-by-2-inch band of decorative paper. Glue band around box; you can attach more paper to box ends. Embellish with string, stickers, or a thin strip of paper glued around box.

To make a card to go inside, cut a 2-by-21/2-inch piece of paper; trim edges with pinking shears, if desired, and fold in half.
