Matchbox Message
Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

A tiny slide-out compartment holds big love and lets the recipient know he or she is unmatched.

What you'll need

  • Wrapping or scrapbook paper
  • Glue stick
  • Small, empty matchbox
  • Paper fastener
  • Stickers, gems, or ribbon
  • Paper or card stock

How to make it

  1. Use wrapping or scrapbook paper and a glue stick to cover the outside of a small, empty matchbox as well as the front and inside of its insert.

  2. Add a paper fastener to the front of the insert to serve as a pull, and decorate the box with stickers, gems, or ribbon, as desired.

  3. Cut a strip of paper or card stock that will fit, folded accordion-style, into the insert (our strip is 1¾ by 7½ inches). Write a note on the strip, decorate it, and tuck it into the box.
