Step 1: Match Box
Start with an empty match box. Decorate if you want.
Step 2: Pins & Needles
Stick a couple pins and needles on a piece of felt.
Step 3: Buttons
Buttons of various sizes are helpful in case you lose one.
Step 4: Matches & Thread
Matches are always helpful to have around. You never know when you'll need one. To save space, wrap a bunch of thread around the ends. Even if you end up needing to light the match, the non-burned portion of the stick is still usable.

Safety pins are another useful item to have in your emergency kit. Other items you may consider: tiny scissors, thimble, tiny measuring tape, glue, golf pencil, chalk, etc.
