Are you tired of losing what seems like every bobby pin you own? No matter where you put your pins, they always seem to wander off, as if without a home! However, a bobby pin wallet provides your bobby pins with a cozy home! Bobby pin wallets can easily be made. Once you have constructed a bobby pin wallet, it can be tucked safely away in your purse, bag, or pocket for easy access. What are you waiting for? Get creating!

  • Scissors
  • X-acto knife
  • Cutting Mat
  • Duct Tape
  • Pencil
  • Hot glue gun
  • Binder clip
  • Bobby pins
  • 2 Foam sheets, each measuring 8 1/2 inches by 6 1/2 inches

Step 1: The Base

Once you have decided the main color of your bobby pin wallet, fold the foam sheet in half, hamburger style. Refer to the photos if you are unsure of the concept of hamburger style. Open the sheet back up.

Next, take your complementary colored sheet of foam. Place it on one of the halves of the main foam sheet, and decide how large you want the bobby pin holder to be. Mark an outline of a small rectangle using a pencil. After doing so, cut the rectangle out, and use it to cut an identical second rectangle.
This is the weirdest thing I've ever heard of
