Match Box Template Instructions Tip: When cutting the box top, cut on the outside of the lines so that it is just a hair larger than the box bottom. Print out templates and reduce or enlarge as desired. (The sizes indicated on the template are those of an actual match box I have.) Trace template onto card stock. Cut all solid lines; score and fold all dotted line. Note: Make a note of the solid and dotted lines on the area marked "Tab" on the box bottom.
