I show how to make a small, lightweight and water proof container out of two plastic bottle caps. The caps are cut off under the protruding ring on the neck of the bottle, then the bottoms are made flat and glued together. It can be used to store matches, as a mini survival kit or for anything that will fit inside. This container is great for taking camping, traveling, biking, hiking and much more because it is compact, durable and waterproof.

Step 1: Materials

- 2 Plastic bottles with caps



-Sandpaper/hand file


Step 2: Watch the Video

you see a container, I see a firecracker
<p>Fill a cap with Potassium permaganate, add grycerin, close the caps tightly, run for your life.</p><p>Or mix it outside the container for a neat chemical fire starter</p>
