Introduction: Match Keeper... (or Toothpick Keeper)
Have you ever been backpacking or camping and your match box gets wet? That gets on my nerves, so I came up with this. A duct tape/ chapstick match keeper!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Starting...
First take your used chapstick tube.
Step 2: Clean It Out!!
Then take a knife and scoop out the stuff left.
Step 3: Removing...
Then take out the elevator. (as I like to call it) :)
Step 4: Duct Tape It!
I used gold, but you can use any color you want to.
Step 5: Trim Your Matches.
The un-trimmed matches are too tall to fit with the lid on, so you have to trim the ends off... Don't trim the tip off!
Step 6: Put the "Elevator" Back In.
Once you put the elevator back in twist it all the way down.
Step 7: Cut the Strike Surface...
Then cover it with duct tape. It's not guaranteed to keep water away from the strike surface but it'll slow it down.
Step 8: Secure It.
I put a whole lot of duct tape around the base because you really don't want to lose it.
Step 9: And There You Have It!
It's done... I hope you liked it, this is my first Instuctable so please let me know if it is good!
