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.
