Whenever I go to a fun restaurant or bar, I keep a lookout for matches. They’re nice little mementos to take home and I like keeping a small collection. So, I thought, maybe it would be cool to make classic rock-inspired matchbook covers just in time for Valentine’s Day. And with my husband being a huge Bruce Springsteen fan, of course I HAD to include our wedding song, “Fire.”
DIY Matchbook Covers
If you like these matchbook covers, you can download a PDF of the Classic Rock Matchbook Covers here.
Or you can design your own—perfect for wedding or shower favors. To create your own matchbook covers, flatten the matchbook and measure it around from the strike strip to the edge of the flap. Then, in your design program, enter the dimensions and create something fun!
Next, print your design or the PDF in this post on 8-1/2” x 11” sticker paper. Trim the cover using the crop marks in the PDF and then align the sticker on the matchbook with the shorter end of the sticker flush against the strike strip. The side of the matchbook with the flap is a little longer. Press the sticker firmly, then fold and tuck the matchbook flap.
I dare you not to sing these songs while you’re making the matchbook covers!
