Seasonal riddle

Everyone is busy cleaning the house for Pesach. Take four matches or four toothpicks and build yourselves a small dustpan on your table, and put a crumpled piece of paper in the dustpan, as shown below.
Can you move only two matches, in a way that you will have a whole dustpan, while the ‘dirt’ will be outside of it - all without touching the ‘dirt’?
Good luck!

If you take out 6 matches of 15, you only will be left with 9 matches. You needed to think out of the box! As you can see, if you remove this 6 gray matches - you will be left with the word "TEN".

The Israeli version: you will be left with "עשר", which means ten in Hebrew.
