Nice idea, easy and lightweight. You might try laying it on its side in the V shape to light it. If the V was pointed into the wind, it might light quicker and the second cardboard strip would burn hotter as it wouldn't be laying flat (just a thought).
I like the idea that the whole thing is dipped in wax, making it really waterproof. While dryer lint works to a degree, most experts (not me) say that it is not the best for burning because it contains all kinds of synthetics, etc. Maybe enclosed in wax it will be okay, but it is really not that expensive to purchase a large bag of cotton balls at the dollar store and fluff several up in each pod instead of lint. Nice idea, and easy.
"Gray Man" Style EDC Trauma Kit. This WILL Save Your Life!!!
Water, fire, shelter, food are usually listed in that order. I think adding even a mylar space blanket for shelter would be a good idea. Also, even though you may carry a knife separately, I would include a Victorinox Classic in the kit. It's very small and has a pair of scissors, tweezers, and a small file. You didn't mention the container. Is it a snuff box? Great first Instructable.
This is a very clever way to create a tie down. Many of today's cars are made without tie downs. Just a thought, if you place a piece of PVC or a wooden dowel inside the hose after inserting the strap so that the strap was wrapped around the rod, it would add strength and the hose would be there to protect the finish of your car. Either way, this is a great idea. I'm making one soon.
