Menacing Matchsticks VII

Trick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.

You will need ten matchsticks for this.

First, take seven matchsticks and make the digital representation of 8. After that, take the other three matchsticks and place them on the short edge of the 8, such that the matchsticks look like a 3x1 rectangle.

The last three matchsticks take away the distinction of the matchstick body to the number 8. The number 8 is known to be just above 7. The challenge is this: move three matchsticks to make something that is "just above 7".

All matchsticks must be within the object. Matchsticks must not be removed, stacked, or broken. The matchsticks must all stay together connected.

Good teaser but can't you use sticks or pencils instead?

I figured out that it was supposed to be an ampersand, but I couldn't figure out how to do it.
