Matchbook Mints:  These are super easy to make.  You can churn out a bunch in a short time and they’re easy on the wallet!  Simply cut out a rectangular piece of fun card stock or scrapbook paper, score it, fold it and staple the individually wrapped mints inside.  Use them as party favors or write names and table numbers on them to double as seating cards.  You could also add quotes or a special message from the couple just by running the paper through the printer before you cut them out. by tanya
