First make all the smaller pouches you will need with the 8 inch roll bag. You will need to make 4-5 of these smaller pouches depending on what you choose to add to your DIY MRE.

I used 5 bags for this DIY MRE. The first bag was cut approx. 3 1/2 inches long, sealed along the bottom edge and then further divided into 4 compartments.

The next bag was also cut 3 1/2 inches long, seealed along the bottom, and divided into 3 compartments.

The next 2 bags were cut approx. 6 inches long, sealed along the bottom, and then a small compartment of approx 2 inches was seealed along one edge.

The bag was cut approx. 4 1/2 inches long, sealed along the bottom, and divided into 3 compartments.
