As a Boy Scout and staffer at Camp Wanocksett in New Hampshire, I have learned a lot of tips and tricks over the years for ways to make do with what you have for equipment to get you what you need. One of my dilemmas that I once had occurred when I need a small matchbox to carry my matches that wouldn't bend or break any matches in my pack. The solution came from a half full Tic-Tac box, and a mostly empty 250 count matchbox. With a little bit of crafty skill, I brought everything together to make a waterproof tic-tac matchbox for all to enjoy, especially when you don't need 250 matches, and you want is some good matches with good matchheads.
I have submitted this into the Coleman Camping Challenge Contest, so if you like what you see, vote for my 'ible in the contest.
WARNING: This project involves using super glue, which shouldn't be used by big buffoons, whatever a buffoon is. Honestly, you can use rubber cement instead, so it doesn't really matter.
Step 1: Materials
• 1 Large Tic-Tac container
• 1 Empty box of matches, preferably a 250 count match box, or a waterproof match box
• A Small bottle of Super-Glue, Rubber Cement, or other glue that works on plastic
• A Pair of Scissors
• Approximately 30 Matches, any kind of your choice, but I prefer the "Kitchen Matches" because of their large match head, and long burning time.
Optional: Goo Gone, to help remove the Tic Tac sticker
