well thank you. it was soo easy to knock up too-
2 sheets of card for the box. box liner a strip of card.tea box is a cheat so i can reuse it a few times and is off cut from the box making. latrene paper is grease proof/tracing paper. the brown wrapping is a brown Mc Donalds bag(ive also got brown wrapping paper too but) and last 1-2 sheets white paper for the labels. all tolled about £1.50-£2.00 to knock up. added bounus the wife didnt nag me as i was been quiet and productive to let her get on with what she wanted to do lol.

Repackaged, it might do to replace the dehydrated meat block?

Here is my latest attempt, feedback welcome

What the label says describes what is in the package with the exception of the tin, the only suitable tin i could find was a mini tuna tin.

RE chewing gum, how does one package the pellets? I can see the end result but dont know what material to use or how to pack it in said material
