I made vaseline impregnated cotton wool balls. They're awesome; easy to light from a ferro rod and burn for a while. They also pack very small because they compress and there is no waste space. Your buds seem slowing burning again though.
I think almost everyone has at one time or another has made and used the cotton wool/PJ fire starter, they are a bushcrafter staple.
I agree you could make these, they are simply tight weave cotton plugs (think tampon) infused with paraffin wax (assumed), but for the price, I wouldn't bother and you get a nice screw lid tin as well.
