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
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
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.) ;)
