Wedding DIY: Match Box Favors with a Free Download!
Matchbox favors are a super cheap and really cute way to give your guests a little something to leave your wedding with! These boxes literally cost me 17p each and you can get them even cheaper than that if you buy them in bulk on Ebay! Plus we’re throwing in the print out we designed for free so you can easily print it off and have a budget friendly and fun favor!
Here’s how to do it…(seriously guys, it’s SO easy it practically doesn’t need a tutorial!)
Step 1: Save the free template and print it out! You can choose from pink, black, purple, blue or orange! Or you can just print out a whole load of them and get colourful with your favors!
Step 2: Cut out around the stencil of one of your match box wrappers.
Step 3: Position it around your matchbox.
Step 4: Fold it underneath the box and tape the one side in place.
Step 5: Bring the other side under and tape on top using a thin piece of tape! You could glue if you prefer it to look a bit neater! No one will see under neath though!
Step 6: Turn it back over and voila! You’re done! Now onto the next one…
Have fun! And for even more printables click here!
Much bespoke love
This is awesome!!! Looks so easy to make and the free download is the best part!!
Thank You for the Idea!1
Is it just me, or does the wrapper cover up the sandpaper? You can pull them off of the matchbox before wrapping (they should just be glued on) and glue them back on over the cute paper!
How much does this cost average? With the cost of the matches, paper and ink? Love this idea!

Could you tell me the dimensions of the labels you made? Thank you!
hi there, i need some help…:) i so love this “matches labels” i print one but i think it’s too small for the normal match size… or did i print it wrong? i just click and save – > you can choose from pink, black, purple, blue or orange then print it but the size is too small?
I think you have to buy this particular brand matches for the free printable to work? I tried it with another band and they were too small…trying to fix it up in photoshop : ) Thanks for the free download!!! Super cute!
I think we had a pretty standard box of matches but the sizes will definitely vary. Glad you like it 🙂
