I have this thing for pretty matchboxes. Even the simplest things deserve something pretty to wear, right? When I had my flower & gift shop many years ago, I would stay stocked with matchboxes printed with lovely messages or encased in metal covers. So why not DIY and print some pretty box covers onto label paper? I started with the bulk pack of Diamond matchboxes that you can find at the grocery store. This set of labels is designed with the trendy chalkboard style design and the monograms are completely customizable when you open your PDF. You will need to upload this free font, Museo Slab onto your computer for the monogram. After you update your monogram, print the template onto a full sheet of label paper. You can find these at your office supply store. Make sure to print at full size or the labels will be too small for the boxes. Trim the chalkboard rectangles with scissors and adhere one to each side of your boxes. There you have it. . . pretty matchboxes! These are great to have around the house, to give as a personalized gift with a lovely candle or to use on the tables of your party or wedding for guests to light the candles at dusk. So let your crafty light shine and label-up your matchboxes today! ~ Lia
