      (used an old candle jar with lid). use a mason jar to store matches instead of an ugly box. Just trim the strike pad from the box and use double sided tape to affix it to the bottom of your jar!

      Lets face it, match boxes are ugly and fall apart. Thriftstore jar. Bottom lined and strike pad attached. Adorable and perfect with candles as a gift.

      Thriftstore jar. Bottom lined and strike pad attached. //Great idea for keeping matches dry. Could attach the strike pad to inside of lid to keep it dry as well.

      Such a great alternative to a not so pretty match box! Mason jar full of matches with striking pad on bottom.
