Here is a unique yet practical Valentine’s Day gift. Inexpensive, and with a strong graphic, this warms my crafter heart. I hope it lights your fire. (stop me!)
box of kitchen matches
double stick tape or glue stick

If you want to wish the happy couple a greeting, cut out a “you are” label. If you want to give this to your love, cut out “we are”.
Staple this label to the inside of one end of the inside box. Fold the label to use as a pull tab.
Adhere the “Happy Valentine’s Day label to the light cardboard match belt (I have no idea what it’s called) inside the box.
Stick the label “A Perfect Match” or “A Match Made in Heaven” to the front of the matchbox.
Did you notice that the flame on the match is an upside-down heart? So clever. (I’m double-jointed so that I can pat myself on the back)
