Ok so what you need to make this is an address tube for dogs, cats, and other pets. (Not Fish)

You will also need a pen and paper.

Tools you also need are: sizers, tape, and a stanley-knife. (Be carful with the sizers and stanley-knife)

Step 2: Cut Some Paper At size Of Address Tube.

Ok so people can sign there name on the paper (AKA "LOGBOOK") and still be able to put it back in the address tube.

Ok so to do that we need to take the pen and cut a peice of pen tube to the size of the paper Then you need to tape the paper to the tube. (I used a stanley knife to split the pen tube for the paper to fit in. You dont need to do that.)

Step 4: Tape The Paper To The Tube.

now you need to tape the paper to the tube.

Where did you get so many pet address tubes. I don't even know were to find them in Wisconsin. Can you please help. I need some that are affordable seeing that I'm on SSDI.

Humm, I'm not sure you can still get them but any pet shop around should have something similar enough to use.. Also I'm going to move all my instructables to another account, as I will not be maintaining these guides, but I may create updated versions and remove them from the old account.. ( I hate the idea of the payfor [pro] and I have all in one at the steps, so I want to keep it :)
yet me know where you are going to move your stuff to so I can follow your great ideas. By the way my geo name is fdlseeker if you want to be friends on the geosites too. Thanks for the grea ideas.

aahhh geocaching correct spelling for it is needed
Nice job. Perfect for a mini 'cache. These are even small enough, you could put them in a larger 'cache as a trade item, that way people who have no idea how to make a 'cache can trade for one and set it somewhere else.

I dont think is is realy a trade item but it can be for the cachers that what to hide a mini logbook.
Maybe not for a trade item, but would be another option for seed / daughter caches to put into nurseries.

nice spot for the cache to hide, but this is a mini version of the biston tube so it is perfect for string on in a tree...
I've traded plenty of stuff just like this. I find it's better to trade useful stuff, like a mini pad of paper, mini-pens, batteries, and tiny compasses. In my opinion, this falls directly into the useful category. Better than leaving behind some useless junk that you found in a dollar-store clearance bin.
