    Love the idea, it really has got legs. However, I do feel that there needs to be more attention to the actual abrasive material used to strike the match against. I recently found myself with a bunch of empty lighters which caused me to look around for alternatives. This bought forward boxes of matches, but I found that they needed numerous strikes to ignite them. I am confident that, amongst so many resourceful minds, we can find a more suitable and permanent alternative. Great idea!

    I wonder whether this oval shaped plastig rim on the inside of the lid is required to hold the lid tight when closed (unfortunately, I do not have a Tic-Tac-Box here at the moment to check). Otherwise it could be cut off and (part of) the match box strip could be glued to the inside of the lid. This way also the strip would be protected.

    This is a perfect solution to my waterproof matches packaged in flimsy cardboard boxes!
