To make the matchbox covers
- Good quality stock/card textured paper
- Hobby knife
- Cutting mat
30 minutes to make
Basic Adobe Photoshop skills needed
Step 1 Once you have downloaded the psd file, open it up in Photoshop and adjust the ‘bride’ and ‘groom’ text, as well as the date of with the names you want.
Step 2 Print out on good quality stock paper.
Step 3 Measuring the width of your matchbox, make a pencil marker on your print out where you need to cut. Do this at the top and bottom. Align your ruler with these marks and cut using a sharp hobby knife. Do the same for the height, making sure your design is as centred as you can get it.
Step 4 I used a tacky glue and brushed it over the back of the design before pressing down and holding in place on the matchbox for a few minutes to set. Do the same for the front of the matchbox and repeat until you have covered all your matchboxes.
TIP: If you have any paper hanging over, wait until your glue is dry, flip it over so the paper that is hanging over is flat on the table and shear off any excess with your hobby knife.
To make the sparkler tags

Step 1 Download the sparklers pdf template here and print out onto good quality card stock
Step 2 Cut along the lines using a hobby knife and a ruler for a neater edge
Step 3 Punch a hole on either side of the tag using a hole punch. Be careful not to punch through the text or too near the edge!
Step 4 Thread a sparkler through the holes and display in a tin or a jar
