Match boxes are ugly and I bought a hefty 3-pack of 250 matches (per box, that is) so I wanted a way to have my matches on my desk without looking at a crappy cardboard box.
Step 1: Collect Your Supplies
-Scissors, a blade, or your sharp wit.
Step 2: Insert the Matches
Step 3: Cut a Square From the Side of the Match Box.
Step 4: Glue the Striking Square to the Bottle Using Superglue
Step 5: Hooray! Bottle Is Complete!
Step 6: Light That Sucka
What's nice about having the strikepad on the cap is that you don't need to carry the whole bottle with you to light something across the room. Or in your roommate's room. Or your roommate.
Speaking of, my roommate is the one who suggested the benefit of the cap over the bottle. He told me to take credit for it but I just can't do it with a clean conscience. So, credit goes to Tom for that outstanding thought. Hooray, Tom!
