Hey can anyone help?  I want to make fake matches like ones you strike on the box?
Or a full instructable or post box and at least 20 matches

Or take some balsa wood and cut out a few square pieces of wood and shave them to the size of your match sticks....then a dip of the tip in some thick red paint that has been stirred VIGOROUSLY, or shaken (to introduce a few bubbles to aid in realism when the paint dries. . .

Er, scrape the heads of real matches, dip the ends in red paint?
