Wedding ~ DIY Matches

4:58 PM

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!

  1. That is a great idea! I'll keep it in my to do list for whenever I get married lol

  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...
