Bottle-cap Box





Introduction: Bottle-cap Box


I made a box for storing candy, medicines, money or whatever you want. I made it from two bottle-caps.

Please vote for me in the "Reuse contest"!

This is my second Instructable.

A cap= the cap from a plastic bottle

A bottle=a plastic bottle.

Step 1: What You Will Need:

You will need:

  • Scissors
  • Stanley knife
  • A clean cap
  • A clean bottle with cap
  • Hot glue gun
  • Cutting board

Step 2: Cut

Cut the plastic bottle with a stanley knife. Now, you have something like the second image. Then, cut with scissors. You must leave some (hard) plastic at the cap. If you are finished, you must have something like the third image.

Step 3: Glue

Glue the lonely red cap with four dots on the plastic that you have left behind. After that, you have something that looks like the second image.

Step 4: Finishing

Turn the cap tight to the rest and you are done. If you want to open it, turn the cap off.

Love this! Use it when go backpacking. (seasoning, soap, and pills)---Thanks!

You got me inspired! I'm going to try a larger version. Peanut butter jars. Big enough to put a door key in. Bury it in my flowers for an emergency spare.

Never thought of changing the size! Many possibilities! Thanks for the idea!

good idea. Hope to see the finished product

This has been done many many times already. Mine was made for Geocaching also, and is waterproof. Have even done to place a thin piece of plastic in middle so it separates as 2 compartments.


bro send me one as a gift its my birthday next month! i will always remember u in my prayers.

What a great idea! Also leaves room for innovations as shown by comments below. Well done, you!!

Instead of sticking them with glue, try hammering them. Less materials required, less mess :) (but chances are it won't be watertight)

Just be aware: these are used by pill junkies and will give probable cause to search if stopped by police for any reason.

they would have to already be searching in order to find these.
