    This wasn't on my original to-do list but we decided to have a cigar bar during cocktail hour so we needed some matches.  I ordered standard size plain white matchbooks from E-bay ($6.50 for a pack of 50 including shipping costs).  Since I'm always trying to use supplies on hand, I decided to use large address labels (4" x 3.3").  They were perfect to fit 2 covers on each label.  I did our standard logo on one side and on the other I printed cute sayings.  I use plain pieces of the label for the small area below the strike line.  I'm pretty happy with the finished product.

      Great job.  They look awesome.  I might try to do that if we go with the cigar roller.  Still undecided.

                  That's a fantastic idea, never would have thought of doing that.

                    I'm going to steal this idea!!! I wanted to put candles in our OOT bags but didn't want to just put ugly matchbooks in with them!  This is great!
