I’m not typically one for marketing swag. If it’s not practical or if it’s tacky, I just won’t use it, no matter how much I like the brand.

That’s why when it came down to celebrating the redesign of my blog, I wanted to make something nice without going overboard. When I stumbled across these mini post-it books at Paper Source, I knew a simple logo could dress it up without overdoing it. If you’re looking to make an event keepsake, or maybe a unique business card, try your hand at making these custom mini matchbooks!

The only thing you need to do aside from buying the matchbooks is order stickers. I used 1″ round ones, but any shape will do. Because of timing, I ordered these labels from Amazon and had my design printed locally. If you plan ahead, you can avoid the hassle and have a company (like StickerYou) print them for you.

Attach stickers to the notebooks, trying to get them as centered as possible. If it’s off centered, don’t worry, I’m not judging.
