Keep Matches in a Mason jar – with a Strikable Lid!
It’s a super easy project. And the mason jar is perfect for taking camping or for just lookin’ pretty. Basically: put STRIKE ANYWHERE matches in a jar. Strike-on-the-box matches won’t work. Cut the sandpaper to the shape of the mason jar.
The one thing you have to do is place sandpaper onto the metal mason jar lid. It is preferred to use the 2 piece mason jar lid so it seals the matches from water, and provides a hard striking surface on top. The single piece lids are not suggested because the sandpaper will wear out.
