Wedding ~ DIY Matches


I started this project with stick matches from the dollar store.
They come in packs of 10 for $1.00


I cut long strips of card stock the width of the box,
this paper has a beautiful texture.


I scalloped one edge and added a thin strip of pink paper to the scalloped end.


I wrapped the card stock around the box of matches and trimmed off the excess.


 
 I added a monogram that I printed out on sticker paper to the top...


And then made about 40 more!


Easy and inexpensive!

  2. Very nice, Susan! Another great wedding project! I have some of the big boxes and I usually keep one out for lighting my candles. I have been meaning to cover them after seeing some done at a boutique that looked really pretty.

  3. Okay. I think I am missing something here. What are the matches for? The redo is adorable, but I don't get it...
