Introduction: Altoid Matchbox

Have you ever wanted had a more compact place to keep your matches, without those bendy little matchbook matches that are almost impossible to light?, well here's something to do about it!

Step 1: Materials

Things you need:

Altoid tin
regular matchbox
scissors
glue
matches

Step 2: Preping the Tin and Striker Pad

Empty out the tin by eating them (or put them in a bag if your in a hurry)
measure out the approximate length of the tin on the striker pad and cut it out.

Step 3: Finishing Up

Finally glue the striker pad where ever it fits on the tin. Then add your matches (you may need to cut them to fit).

Step 4: Ta Da!

Your steps might differ from mine a bit due to the different types of tins.
