I thought I would end Craft Lightning week with these matchbook valentines. I have a free printable for you so that you can make your own in just minutes. These are great for the man in your life that has everything. Maybe he loves to grill and could use a special matchbook to light the fire. Maybe you just want to let him know how much he lights your fire! Either way, read on to learn how to make your own. This is a part of Craft Lightning where we are sharing 15 minute crafts every day this week. Be sure to check out day 1, day 2, day 3, and day 4 if you have missed any of the fun. You can scroll to the bottom of this post to see the ideas from today as well.
Supplies needed to make your own matchbook Valentines:
- Free printable file (click here to print your own)
- Card stock
- Computer and printer
- Sand paper
Download the printable file here and print onto white card stock. Take apart your matchbook by removing the staple.
Cut the matchbook covers from your card stock with scissors. Use the matchbook cover you removed as a template to see where to bend your new cover.
You will need something to strike the matches against on the back of your matchbook as well. Cut a piece of sand paper to size.
Use adhesive to glue it onto the back.
Add your matches back to the new cover and use a staple to secure.
Fold over the matchbook and this is ready for gift giving!
Remember these are intended for fun Valentine’s Day gifts for adults only. There are six different version on the printable file. You can make them all or just pick your favorite one.
I think this is an adorable idea for that special someone in your life. It is an easy and inexpensive way to show you care. Plus it is perfect for that person that has everything!
Add these matchbook Valentines to your must make list today!
Your Valentine will love this small token of your affection!
