One of my favorite ideas that came into play with our wedding was the Cigar Bar I designed for my husband and his fraternity brothers. It gave the guys a fun "manly" thing to do during the wedding and everyone told us how much they liked it! Now for me, no cigar bar is complete without personalized matches, and no better time to personalize everything than for your wedding! As I searched, I couldn't seem to find anything quite right so I decided to design my own! It was surprisingly easy and I love the way they turned out!

Matches Template

1. Using the matchbook template, start by putting your own information into the text boxes. The font I used for our names and location is called Baroque Script, so if you want it to look exactly like these matches make sure to have the font downloaded beforehand!

2. Print out the matches and cut them out with scissors. Next, line up the top of the matchbook and the sticker. Make sure that the sandpaper strip is on the side that won't be covered by the sticker.

3. As shown above, adhere the sticker starting at the top, then smoothing around the entire matchbook. Below you see a finished matchbook.

This project really added a special touch to our big day and as you can see its quite easy to do! After the initial measuring and designing of the template it only took about two hours to cut and make 100 matchbooks! Stay tuned for more fun wedding crafts!
