Matchbox Makeover

Here's an easy way to dress up your matchbox! I initially made these to add to candle gifts for Christmas and now I have them around my house for my personal use!

Ingredients Paintbrush {foam}
Mod Podge
Match Box

Measure your Cardstock paper on the top and side.

Cut two sizes for top and bottom and two for the sides.

Mod PodgeUsing the foam brush, spread the glue on one section and then place the matching size cardstock on. Repeat until all four places are decorated!

Easy, Fun and Beautiful! These make great additions to throw in a gift if your giving a candle!
