Ohmigosh – I was going to save this matchbox template for closer to the winter holidays but when I made these test projects they were so cute I just couldn't WAIT to share them with you! AND I made a Make-It Video for you to be able to see all the little tricks and tips.

I hope this matchbox template helps you come up with your own cute versions of these adorable giftables!
