Bones keeps all her matches in a tin not only does it keep them out of harms way, but it recycles the tin. Well needless to say I wanted one it was a good idea. I am for ever buying matches for lighting the fire and a tin would be a good way of keeping them all together.


I found this Wittard’s tin containing 3 year old loose tea. I thought that it was well past it’s sell by date, so I recycled it and it now contains all my matches.


It was a simple thing to pritt stick the inside of the lid and apply the strikers from a couple of boxes.





And there you have it!
