Matchbook Invitation Template

Here is the template for the matchbook invitation that I used on my Indoor Wienie Roast and Chinese New Year invites. I couldn't get it into a PDF file so here is how you print it. First you right click on this template photo. It fill bring up a menu so choose 'Print Picture' then do a print preview before you print to make sure that it all fits on one 8 1/2 x 11 paper. If it shows that it doesn't fit then reduce the image to 60% and it should be perfect. You want it to almost completely fill the page.
*Before cutting invites, determine which side is up and which is down*
1.Print this template onto plain paper.
2.Cut around outer edge.
3.Trace pattern onto your invitation paper.
4.Cut out invite and fold as directed by the pattern.
5.Where the pattern says 'staple' on that portion of the invite, fold up that small flap and put a staple in the middle of the flap leaving room to tuck the top flap into it as you would a real book of matches.
