    Hey Ladies...so it's been a crazy week so far but I'm feeling great about completing this project and I just had to share. We're giving pashminas and cigars at our reception and when I saw a fellow BDW bride most her "mintbooks" I thought...oooo...I could do personalized matchbooks for the cigar table. I tweaked her template and here's how they turned out!
    • Print template out on sticker paper from Staples
    • Trim just along side the monogram and the Thanks for sharing message
    • Use sticker paper to attach the label around a matchbook (I ended up using a rolling glue from Staples) My matchbooks were bright yellow so the extra backing paper helped to cover them up better
    • Trim the Date to fit and glue
    • Voila you have your own matchbooks for your cigar table!

      Very nice. Do you hire yourself out to bride who get home from work at 11 pm, lol.

      Off topic but I have not gotten a friend request before on this site. You're officially my first friend, how exciting! Now to figure out what being friends allows us to do. Have a good night.

                Very nice, thanks for sharing. I had gotten one from Martha Stewart I think, but yours is much easier to work with.

                    We ordered personalised matchbooks from a friend and they were your standard, names/date in script. The only thing that tied it to our wedding was the colour of the books (purple). Yours are great because they have your logo so they're 100% custom! Great job :)
