Make Fancy Matchboxes

Ditch the Bic and make some of these gorgeous matchboxes you can proudly display on your coffee table or vanity. With an economy pack of matches from the dollar store and a sheet of balsa wood from your local craft store you can finish a batch of these pretties for housewarming gifts for under $5! Make several matchboxes at a time to gift along with your favorite scented candles for the holidays.
