DIY :: Valentine’s Matchbox Wraps

February 10th, 2012

matchbox match box favor gift craft valentine valentine's day cute easy diy

I have the fondest memories of school on Valentine’s Day, don’t you? I remember leaving the house decked out in shades of red and pink (uniform permitting), and handing out sweet little valentine’s to everyone I knew. Whether it was a piece of candy or tiny cards with names handwritten on them, the day was always buzzing with friendly exchanges between classmates. This year, I’ve decided to revive the tradition (grownup style) by creating these matchbox valentines. Small and economical, they’re perfect for handing out on the days leading up to the 14th… and since I’m totally feeling the love these days, I couldn’t resist sharing the idea with all of you! Keep reading for the downloadable template and piece-of-cake instructions!

  3. Place and wrap around matchbox as pictured above, creasing on box corners. Secure with tape.

  16. Kristen says:

    These are adorable however, when printed, the template is WAY to small and must be enlarged to fit this size match box. Also, once applied, there is no way to actually strike the match without removing the paper.

    • Chanel Dror says:

      Hi Kristen, glad you like these! If you print the file at 100% it should be the exact size to fit the matchboxes. And you’re right, the wrapping will have to be removed before striking :)
