How to Make a Matchbook
No Need for a Printable Template
Directions for Making the Matchbook Miniboks
Matchbooks work well with any type of paper from regular copy paper to cardstock. So grab a sheet and fold along with the directions!
Using a sheet of paper, lightly mark a vertical line about one inch (2.5 cm) from the edge.
Fold the opposite edge to that lightly drawn line.
Then fold the one inch edge back over. This forms the lip of the matchbook.
Cut the matchbooks into the desired width.
Ususally a regular sheet of paper can make four matchbooks. But experiment with different widths for even more variety!
Here is the finished matchbook. The lip at the bottom makes a great place to write the book's title. But there are no fast rules. Be creative in how you use your matchbooks.
This book is directed towards young learners -- preK to third grade at the oldest. There are some fun ideas and reproducibles for making minibooks, file folder games, and paper projects.
