I like to keep a small stash of first aid supplies in my wallet since I have it with me at all times. Before this project, I had managed to cram a CPR face barrier, an alcohol prep, two adhesive bandages, a butterfly closure, and a gauze pad in one of the pockets of my L fold. However, I wanted to add a needle and thread to this stash. I also wanted to do so in a way that I could be fairly sure I wouldn't get stabbed or have the needle puncture the packaging of any of the other supplies. And thus this quick project was born. (When I should have been studying.) I'm sorry that some of the pictures are dark - my roommate was sleeping. I think it's still easy to see what's going on.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

-Small needle
-Cotton swab (Or similar object that can yield a small section of tightly rolled paper, like a lollipop stick)
-Thick paper or card stock (I used a "desk calendar", a big sheet of card stock covered in advertisements someone slipped under my dorn room door, if you wonder later why there's stuff on it.)
-Standard size card (For measurement)
-Pliers (Optional)
-Writing utencil
