Are you short on space in your X-Wing?  Are your Jedi Food Capsules insufficient for supplying nutrition?  It's always good to be prepared for those times when you find yourself in a galaxy far, far, away from your next meal.

This is a pocket sized version of Luke's Emergency Rations from Empire Strikes Back, just the size to hide in a Jedi belt pouch or in a flight suit pocket.  You could easily make a full size version by substituting a larger tin.

Step 1: Materials

- small, rectangular tin with a flat lid.  (I used an old-style Altoids tin.  The movie one looks like an old metal first aid kit.)
- white spray paint (or silver or blue)
- painter's tape (if you want to preserve any of the tin's original color)
- heavy clear plastic - I used part of a box from a model horse
- clear tape
- waxed paper
- scissors
- cutting board
- kitchen knife

The food can vary according to what you like, but this is what I used:
- Cherry Pie Larabar
- Chocolate Chunk granola bar
- Altoids
- Fruity Pebbles cereal
great for total Star Wars geeks like us. :)
Thanks everyone!
How you get so big eating food of this kind? <br> <br>Sorry, couldn't resist the Yoda quote..
A well detailed prop, and a very obscure one at that. You should think about adding those cookies that Yoda steals.
ah that would be a good one to add!! <br>
So interesting. I'll try to make it.
Nicely done, a star wars junkies dream! :)
