Slide the cover off of the match box and flatten it out. Use the lid as a template, centered over the striker section of the box, and trace around it. Then cut it out. Note: Go ahead and cut out additional striker lids before disposing of the box.
On the back side, draw a small square for dispensing the matches. Use a craft knife to cut it out.
Fill the jar with matches.
Insert the striker piece into the lid ring and screw it onto the jar.
Gently shake the jar to dispense a match and use the striker lid to light it.
