Modern Matches Favor-Tag Template and How-To

Martha Stewart Weddings, Special Issue 2011

Tools and Supplies

  • Ink-jet or laser printer
  • 8 1/2-by-11-inch white or cream card stock (65-pound "Classic Crest" cover paper, paperpresentation.com; 6 matchbox covers per sheet)
  • Craft knife
  • Metal ruler
  • Cutting surface
  • Matchboxes (partyfavorsplus.com)
  • Glue stick

Basic How-To

1. Open our PDF file, and replace the placeholder text with your own (you only need to do this in one box; the form will automatically fill in the rest). Print the file. Each sheet of card stock will give you 6 matchbox covers.

2. Use the craft knife and metal ruler to cut between the crop marks (do not cut all the way to the edges of the paper; this will leave the crop marks intact around all the edges to guide subsequent cuts).

3. Wrap the matchbox covers around the boxes, and secure with a glue stick. To transport the matchboxes safely, return them to their shipping container after you've covered them.
