Here is a pocket size emergency kit that can easily fit inside a small purse or pocket.  We never know what might happen to us if we were to break down in our car or get lost on a camping trip.  Using a  woman's compact could save your life.  

Step 1: Supplies

Here is what you will need:

  • 1 used woman's compact with mirror.
  • 1 Very large sewing needle.
  • 2 Strips of duct tape.
  • 1 Small magnet.
  • Scraps of fine sand paper.
  • Strike anywhere matches with a strip from a match book cover for lighting them.  
  • Small strip of Wax paper.
  • Morse code.
  • Scissors.


or you could omit the striker strip if they are STRIKE ANYWHERE matches, hence the name "strike anywhere" matches

Unless those are strike anywhere matches they will not light up using the sandpaper...
