Default Plain white matchbooks

Does anyone know where I can find plain white matchbooks?? I wanted to stamp on them to match a candle for teacher gifts . No luck yet.

Cute idea: matchbox to coordinate w/ candle! I never thought of that & I never know what to do w/ those matchbooks I see in packs of 3 or 4 at Michael's, & maybe AC Moore. But they don't have the strike plates, I don't think......maybe they do???

http://www.vippies.com sells them. They come with notepaper in them and you can add a mini calendar to them for very little $.

oops! I didn't read your post very well--you actually want matches. I will need to do some searching through my files to see if I have ever come across those.

I buy mine at the dollar store(10 for $1.00) but they have a design on the outside of the box - so I just cover it with very neutral paper or cardstock and then start stamping. They make nice gifts with candles - I have planned to make 20 up for Christmas gifts.

Default Match Boxes

I just made some using the little boxes of matches and they came out so cute. I found them 4 for $1 at Walmart. I covered mine with Pretty in Pink CS and than stamped "Cute As A Bug" (the big dragonfly stamp in that set) with black ink on white cs and colored it in with yellow and pink. I adhered that piece to a piece of barely banana cs and than that all went on the front of the matchbox. It matches the candle and other asscessories I made. It's so much cuter than the little white match books and easier to find. Carol
