    Hi everyone,
    you can download and print the box template. Also we added some other set of objects suggested by friends. Our idea is that you get inspired and create your own JUST IN CASE survival kit with objects you love.

    Have fun!,

    Very funny and creative! Creative ingenuity is the name of the game here and your concept has inspired some ideas of my own ...so thanks ;)

    LOVE it! Ranks right up there with a "Do It Yourself Planetarium" a friend sent me that involved using the enclosed star map to poke holes in a black plastic bag, then sticking your head in the bag near a bright light.

    Satire is my kind of fun. I'm glad the end of the world will include chocolate.

    that is hilarious!

    As seen on thefancy.com

    Nice seeing someone from Monterrey. I'm from there as well and love hot chocolate made with chocolate Abuelita.
    Very nice instructable!

    Nice, ;)

    I prefer the need to survive any thing gig. Fishing and hunting with traps and the basic survival first aid kit with herbs and other natural medicines. Know what the weeds are good for.

    I have to agree with artdreams here, but mine would also include Enmergency Procedure 417(an extra-dry vodka martini). Cheers!


    He just added it - it's in the intro now!

    You would have to know what the 'end of the world' looks like. The end of money based culture? Disease? No oil?

    The plagues in Europe wiped out half the population which is why the survivors and descendents of the other half later flourished. Labor became worth more, land was affordable or free, new technologies took over where before they were ignored.

    A kit might help if you know what you really need. Chocolate might be worth more than protein, a lot more.

    which month is the end of the world in this year?
    just so i know what to get.

    I say are you kidding? This is just an emergency gift box, you won't have any chance in case of a real ultimate wild zombies attack . I'm not wise as expected and sure I will hardly not survive more than three days with just one liter of water and so I'm gonna adding in the optional bigger yellow box a couple of 20 liter spring water canisters and a two dozens of canned beans .

    So, what's the big deal? If you find it offensive, just skip it and move on to another. Couple of things there I'd like to find in my 'bug-out' bag~~~that is if I ever get around to putting one together. Mellow out people.

    Hi there!

    It's really great that you made this yourself, just for fun with friends, but why don't you describe how you came up with it, how you designed it (what software, what tools), what resources you used to make it to look so well finished that it really looks like a commercial product ready for store shelves... How can a reader duplicate what you have done with another concept, like a wedding survival kit? Now, that would be interesting!

    Taking 10 steps to show the handy DIY community of this site how to fold a cardboard box might seem a bit out of place...

    PS: A swissknife would be best for survival...

    This is a perfectly acceptable instructable. It is however wrongly named. It should be called:

    Assembling a cardboard box.

    The descriptions of the assembly stages could be better however. The photography is spot on.

    Where do you get that black lined yellow box from? I take it you have to make it yourself, provided you have access to Adobe Illustrator...

    No need to spend the money on Illustrator, Inkscape is an open source vector graphics program that would easily do the graphics. it runs on Windows, Linux, Mac... and it's free! http://inkscape.org/download/?lang=en
