I made a waterproof matchstick case from two used shotgun shells. I used a 12- and 16-gauge shell, but all that matters is that one shell is slightly smaller than the other. Simply stick your matches and some striking paper in the smaller of the two shells, then snugly insert it into the larger shell. I’ve been doing this since I was 10 years old, and it’s never let me down.
