Match Box


I mentioned last week I host a card exchange at my house every other month.  I showed you my ice cream cone embossed card I made here that I will be exchanging that night.  Well I also like to do a little make n' take for the girls - something they came make and take home with them that evening - cheap and not very time consuming. 

I was at Dollar Tree on Friday and picked up some matches - 2 pack.


I found a similar idea here to cover match boxes, but I went for the larger size.  So I started out with these supplies.


I covered the box with some pattern paper using a little double sided tape.



I added a contrasting color - I went with a green.


I attached one more strip of white paper but added some black dashes with a pen.



For the sides I cut a small piece of paper and attached it with a little double sided tape.



Add a little tulle bow or some ribbon and a flower.  I used two paper flowers and attached them together with a brad.



For the tag, I used a punch.  But you could also make a tag.


I stamped To:  From: on this one, but you could use Happy Birthday, Thank You or Thinking of You, etc. if you were using this for a specific occasion.


Punch a small hole in the tag and slide it on the tulle.



I ended up making two.


I'm keeping one, but does anyone want the other?  Leave me a comment and on Friday, May 20, I'll pick a winner - and who knows what I'll put inside.

  2. Adorable! You could even leave the match striking part uncovered and make the coverings match your kitchen.
