Safe Needle and Thread Holder for Wallet First Aid Supplies

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.

First, we're going to make a paper cover to put everything in and to keep the needle from running away. Put the card in the corner of your card stock and trace around it, then move it and do this two more times as shown, creating three touching rectangles, each the size of a standard credit card. Then, cut around the outside line so you're left with a rectangle three credit card-lengths long.
