Etceteras: emergency kit gift box

With all the bad weather we’ve had this winter, I thought it might be a good idea  to have some emergency supplies on hand. I found some emergency candles and match boxes at the dollar store.



I covered the match boxes in kraft paper and added vintage match book graphics.


 
I wrapped the candles in vintage-looking lace and tied them together with a piece of twine.

I think this would make a nice housewarming gift or party favor. For an extra special gift box or gift basket, you could add additional items, such as; batteries, a flashlight, water bottles, candy, mittens, a deck of cards or anything else that might come in handy if the power went out.


 
The supplies fit perfectly in a kraft box I had on hand. I finished up the kit by adding a label to the top of the box. (Vintage label courtesy of the Graphics Fairy).

Emergency supplies – check. Hopefully, we won’t need to use them.
