      Mason jar &black; sandpaper on top to light matches....much better than an ugly match box. Also, more difficult for little hands to get a hold of harmful things. Great mommy idea!!!!

      black sandpaper on top to strike matches on. Neat! This is an especially good idea if you're using strike anywhere matches... we had a box of matches in our storage unit that must've fallen and started them on fire. luckily for us they didn't get enough oxygen and died out. But the whole box of matches were burned up when we found them! We will now store strike anywhere matches in mason jars :)
