Ever burn yourself because a match went too far up the matchstick? The solution is simple and easy to make, needing no more than 15 seconds.
Step 1: Materials
Simple materials you probably (hopefully) have laying around-
Opional stuff that makes the project easier, but not necessary-
Knife (more fun than scissors)
Step 2: Cut! or Tear!
Take a strip of aluminum foil and cut/tear it to a nice strip about 1/2- 3/4 This doesnt have to b eperfect, just fold the foil into a general rectangular shape....
Step 3: Wrap!
Wrap the results of the previous step around the matchstick, at whatever length you see fit. See the match for a few recommendations.
Make sure to wrap in such a way that the aluminum foil completely seals off the two portions of the match- if you don't, the flame will just keep on burning....
Step 4: Light!
That's it!!!! Your done!!!!!!
You've created a disposable guard for any size match. Soon, It'll take about 5 seconds to do the entire project, from start to end. :D
*To make a perfect line if tearing, crease the foil along a table edge first.
