Printable Matchbox Labels with Editable Monograms

Printable Matchbox Labels Matchbox Labels Monogram Matchbox Labels 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

  1. Hi Lia, I absolutely love these!! I bought your other design off Easy. I have downloaded the font and template but the letters won’t centre? Im using a Mac?

  2. i love you ! thank you for posting this! I’m last minute searching for templates to use for promo swag for a market tomorrow and you’ve literally saved my life! ye mum! <3

  3. Hi Lisa,

    Can you tell me when you plan to reopen your etsy shop? I will mary in october and would like to use your design.

  4. OMG thanks for clarifying that you print it on normal white label paper! For some of us that are new to DIY it wasn’t obvious – I won’t tell you what I went through before I finally read this comment

  5. These are great!! I do love the chalkboard look.

    Is one able to edit all the designs or just the two? I have downloaded Monogram Font however I can only edit the two middle rows.


  6. Hi.
    Where can i find those letter fonts?

  7. Thank you so much for posting these awesome printables and favor ideas! I just created a round up of my top 10 wedding favors under 1$ and included these

  8. love the labels so creative!
    just wondering if it would be possible to change the colour on the background. we are thinking of using them for a 40th anniversary which is ruby colour.
    thanks again.

  9. I appreciate your creativity, just love all your art work. I would like to thank you for providing us these innovative ideas.

  10. Lisa, I love your site and wanted to drop by and say thanks for all the wonderful things you share and allow us to download. :)

  11. Lia,
    What is the name of the other two fonts that you use?

  12. Amazing website and printables! You rock!

  13. I am so determined to make these!!
    Do i go buy Avery labels?? What size labels do i need to purchase?
    Getting married on the 20th and its crunch time :-)

    • These are printed onto a full sheet label then trimmed to fit. Avery is a good brand and you can find full sheets at any office supply store.

  14. Hello!

    Amazing work! I love this print for matches. If I will use it, I will show you pictures!

    Thany you very much! :) Great job :)


  15. What label is used there are several different styles?

    • Hi Susan. These were all printed onto one sheet. You can see it if you open the PDF how they are laid out. I used a full sheet label and trimmed to size.

  16. These really are too cute!! Gotta try them!

  17. Thank you!

  18. These are just what I need. I have a duct tape covered matchbox in my bathroom (for air freshener!) and I’ve refilled and used the poor little box so much that the striking strip has completely worn down. Now I can print out these fabulous labels and affix them to a brand new box.

  19. Lia,

    Where can I find the chalkboard labels? And how do you have the different frames to the chalk board labels? Do you download them or are they part of the already printed label?


    • Hey Maria. I made it really easy for you and included the chalkboard print onto the PDF. All you need to do is download it (download and install the font too. . . link in post), open the PDF, change the initials to yours and print it onto a white full sheet label paper. That’s it!

  20. My friends and family raved about the autumn covers I did last fall. Wait until they see these babies!!
    Love them!!!

  21. These are fantastic! I love the idea of giving these as gifts with candles or anything else. So pretty!

  22. My son is always “borrowing” my matches so I think I need to label some up just for me! So annoying when you want to light a candle and there’s no matches.

  23. the personalization seems off center – hopefully this will get fixed because I am SO excited to try these.

    • Hi Sharon, make sure you have the font installed. There is a link for in the post. The font replacement is why it looks off center.

  24. oh how i love these-THANK YOU Lia : >D

  25. Love these! Thank you!!!
