Step 1: Cutting the Matchbox

I used two different kinds of matchbox, only one of which I needed the rough part from. You know, the part that you strike the matches on. Anyway, use scissors to cut it off.

Cool.
Could you put the rough part (strike strip) inside the tin?

No, do not do this. You're now introducing the chance that it can ignite while in transit.

if you did put it on the inside, put it on the top.

You could, but it would be harder to strike. I used matches from one matchbox and the rough part of another empty one (of a different brand) I had lying around. Mine takes several strikes just to light as it is. You could try putting it inside, but it would be easier if the matches and the rough part were from the same box.

Give a man fire he will be warm for an evening.........
I think it would be match tin, nice work!
