Introduction: Survival Tin

These are instructions on how to make a survival tin. Me and my Cousin made one of these over the weekend and it was allot of fun gathering the supplies and putting the kit together. We hope you enjoy our home made survival tin and hopefully it will inspire you to make your own!

Step 1: Step 1.

Start by finding yourself a nice looking, not to large (pocket sized) tin.

Step 2: Step 2.

Then you want to label the inside of the tin lid with what ever information about yourself as you like.
(optional). This is in case you are found unconscious and someone needs to get your details. For safety reasons. We have also added matches and a striker to the lid, to save space in the tin.
