22 Fiery Matchbook Creations

From Matchbook Candles to Drawing With Matches

— December 15, 2009 — Art & Design
There is something so satisfying when you strike a match, I’m not surprised that they haven’t been completely replaced by other lighting alternatives. Besides the satisfaction, there are some inventions that are just perfect as is. I mean, if you need to light a candle or cigarette (yuck), it doesn’t take much to light a match, does it.

And if you take a look at these fiery matchbook creations, you’ll see that there is actually more to matchsticks than meets the eye.
