Introduction: Nifty and Useful Dental Care and Well-being Kit

 DISCLAIMER: This kit is similar to some others on Instructables.com with which you may be familiar. The contents and construction was my own idea. If you think I copied yours, then I had no idea that I was doing so.
 I do not wish to say the brand name of tin I used, but perhaps the second picture below will give you a clue.                                                                                                                                     /\
                                                                                 |

Step 1: Step 1: Stuff You Need...

You will require:
 A metal hinged breath-mint tin
 A cheap toothbrush
 A small roll of dental floss
 A tiny tube of toothpaste
 A gauze pad
 Two flossers
 Two bandages

Step 2: Step 2: Trim Toothbrush to Size

Using a hacksaw, cut 3" down from the toothbrush head.
It should look like the picture below.

Step 3: Bandages

Place both bandages in the tin as shown.

Step 4: Gauze Pad

Fold the gauze pad in half and place as shown.

Step 5: Flossers

Place both flossers on the gauze pad as shown.

Step 6: Toothpaste

Place as shown.

Step 7: Toothbrush

Ditto.

Step 8: Dental Floss

Pop open the Dental floss container so that it comes in two. Remove the spool of Dental floss and place in kit as shown.

Step 9: Apply Artwork and Finished!

You can now cut and paste on any decorations you desire onto the lid of the tin. Let the glue dry, and you are finished! congratulations! (Now go camping and try it.) ;)

Another way of saying Bandages is Band-Aids. They are basically strips of adhesive with a soft section on the bottom that you put over wounds. A gauze pad is a sterile dressing that you put on injuries to keep it from hurting as badly as it would without. I hope this makes sense to you.

If you'd got a pair of pliers for pulling teeth I'd understand it under the heading "Dental care and Well-being kit". I thought this was just a dental-kit.
