Like the instructions for using straws to make mini packages for other items, I sealed one end with a pair of pliers and a candle flame to melt the plastic together.
So what goes inside?
- Two shoelaces
- Two threaded needles (it's easier to thread needles now, and the needles won't get lost if they are dropped while you're trying to thread them in low light as you escape on foot from zombies)
- Two buttons
- Two safety pins
Put the shoelaces (with threaded needles), buttons, and safety pins in the straw, cut to size, and seal the other end. To avoid poking yourself while stuffing the straw, put both needles on the end of the shoelaces that will go into the straw first. If necessary, use the eraser end of a pencil to push everything in. Trim the end of the straw to fit and seal with the candle flame and pliers.
Next, carefully wrap the straw with 24-36 inches of duct tape for emergency shoe (and other) repairs. That's it!
Remember, you saw it here first.
