If you or someone you know takes this fiber supplement you will have the main component for this project. The container for Meta-mucil is a perfect cylinder with a bright orange top. The "label" is a thin plastic covering - easily removed with scissors or an x-acto knife.

Step 2: Materials Needed:

As I get older, any clever means of carrying around Metamucil becomes more and more of interest.

But seriously, nice work!
