  1. Start out by painting a paper mache box however you would like and set aside to try.  You could also opt to use a decorative gift bag instead.
  2. Print the Survival Kit list pictured above from here, or write it out on some colored paper or stationary.
  3. Fill the box or bag with the survival kit contents
  4. Paste the Survival Kit list on the lid of your box, or if you are using a gift bag, attaching it with a ribbon to the strings of the gift bag would be a cute idea!
