Introduction: Firestarter

For those of you that somtimes have trouble starting fires... this is for you!!! Using common houshold materials...

Step 1: Get the Materials and Tools.

Materials:

- 1 Hot glue stick

-1 paper towel tube or toilet paper tube

-1 shoe box or cardboard paper stuff (Will be cut)

Tools:

-Hot glue gun

-Razor blade/craft knife

Step 2: Prepare the Tube.

First thing you want to do:

Cut the paper towel tube about 3 inches long. (If you are using a TP tube, you don't have to do this.)

Cut a square piece of a shoebox (or cardboard paper stuff) and glue it to the tube.

RIP the extra cardboard off.

Step 3: Stuff Your Tube.

Fill your tube with paper, paper towels, napkins, shredded paper, etc.

Glue ANOTHER cardboard cap on.

Step 4: Add a Match (optional)

Use your craft knife to cut a small hole so you can put a match in so just the head is sticking out. This will make sure you really light it. Otherwise, you're done! go enjoy your tube lit fire now.

Really great idea but you could put wax inside it to waterproof it a bit
