  1. I adore these sweet matchbox covers! And I love how clever and punny the phrases are 🙂 I’m featuring these printables at tomorrow’s Creative Spark link party – thank you for linking up last week and I hope you’ll stop by and link up with us again 😀

  2. I used these this year and put Swedish fish in one, zinc tablets in another (anything to fight the flu!), and quarters for the laundry machines in another (my boyfriend has to use the laundry mat right now). I even kept one matches cause we need those in the house anyway, why not have them in a cute box! Thanks so much for the cute idea!

  3. Once cool, use a pencil to draw large hearts on the wax paper envelopes, and then cut out hearts. (I was surprised how easy it is to cut the wax paper with melted crayon inside.) Initially, I was going to trace prefect’s hearts, but I decided to freehand them and let my daughter cut them out.
