This is my first instructable.

My idea is to use this container for matches for
When you are camping. Since the container is a little tall if you put a little dry lint at the bottom the matches will stand better.

You can either fill the container up with matches all the way or half way and add a striker encase you do not know what the dryer lint is for it's like kindling to get it started

It's simple. I love it and I like the popularity of altoid "kits' myself.

Suggestion, make this out of a container that is waterproof like a pill bottle or something. Cut the striker off the matchbox and glue it to the lid.

#0000 steel wool is a much better tinder- you can dunk it in water, knock the water out against a tree or something, and it will still light right up! Try that with dryer lint... Still, a great instructable!
