Matchbox wedding favors are a fun and inexpensive personalized wedding favor idea! And I have just the FREE ones for you!
Place your personalized matchbox wedding favors next to the centerpiece candles on each table. Or, better, have sparklers at your sendoff and offer a large bowl of each, matchboxes and sparklers, at the venue exit! Sparklers are so perfect for night send offs!
With this matchbox wedding favor file, you can simply cut them out with a paper trimmer (Cricut’s is less than $15) or if you have a Cricut, you can upload my JPEG to Cricut Design Space and personalize them before you print!
What You’ll Need For Matchbox Wedding Favors
- Matchbox Wedding Favor Download (below)

How To Make A Matchbox Wedding Favor
- Download – Hop down below and grab my file.
- Cut – Using a paper trimmer, and the guides provided, cut the design front and back out of the sheet.
- Glue – Using glue dots, attach each side to the box. Done!
How To Personalize Your Wedding Favor
If you want a professional looking personalized wedding favor, let’s use your Cricut! It’s actually easier than you think. Once you’ve used the Cricut Print Then Cut feature, you’ll use it all the time!
- Download and Upload – Hop down below for my file. Upload the jpeg to Cricut Design Space. It’s super easy and I show you how in this How To Upload Designs To Cricut Design Space video.
- Font & Color – Once you have the design in Cricut, add the couple’s name on one side and wedding date on the other. I used the gold color in the design. It’s D0AE73 for those that want to be technical, or you could just play around with the colors until it’s a close gold. :)
- Fill A Sheet – Change your mat size in Cricut Design Space to 8.5×11 because you’ll be printing the design to your printer. I used cardstock in the photography, but you could also use printable vinyl and it would stick right to the matchbox instead of having to glue them!
- Cut – Using a paper trimmer, like you see in the photo, and the score lines (small black marks along the edges) cut out all the covers.
- Glue – Using glue dots, attach the fronts and backs to the matchboxes.
TIP – You’ll be using Cricut’s Print Then Cut feature. If you’ve not used it before, I create an entire project start to finish in this How To Print Then Cut Video
