how to make your own magnetic matchbooks

i keep telling myself i am finally going to get around making some magnets. i love collecting fun ones so i figure making my own is the next step. apartment therapy posted this tutorial and i think it looks like fun. only thing is i would be worried the little ones might get the matches, so i think i would fill them with a little surprise inside - like a mini toy or mints instead of matches. you can find the directions to make your own magnets here.

what do you guys think? would you make these?
