Step 1: Get your guitar picks and a rubber band

Picture of Get your guitar picks and a rubber band
Im an using 3 picks but depending on the size of your rubber band it can hold a lot more.

Step 2: Now we start

Put the rubber band on the guitar pick like in the picture.

Step 3: Twist it

Step 4: Wrap around

Take the end with the loop and pull it around the the other side.

Step 5: Hook the loop on the end

Now you hook the loop to the the pointy end.

Step 6: You are done :D

All done :) If you want you can hook a keyring ot a chain or something to the twisted part :)

you could put it between your strings and alternate like aweave pattern...probably not good for your strings tho....

I use this little bag this girl made for me. its pretty sweet
My solution has always been to slightly unscrew the top screws of my strat and to shove my picks up in there. Viola!
I just put my picks between the tone knobs on my strat

I just use a Crown Royal bag to carry all my guitar supplies. Those bags come in handy and I have far too many of them.

interesting, i just use the bill of my hat. its got a hole in it so i put some staples to make the shape of a pick and it works pretty good. i always have at least two picks with me at all times.

I looked at your instructions for about two minutes and I have no idea what you did...the pictures are impossible to see.

can you do it without smoke ?
I think that's his camera. Nice idea BTW...
Correction: "I think that's her camera." ;)

im not sure if the 'smoke' you are talking about is the grainy-ness of the pics or the white in the bg. The pics are grainy because I had to use a webcam since my digital isnt working and the white is a white shirt I had in front of my since the shirt I was wearing was dark and striped and I wanted to make it as easy to see the picks as possible with a webcam and not that much light. BTW im a girl :P
Sorry bout that, I should have stuck with my usual she/he (or s/he) just to cover both sides :P But now that I know (well, now we all know ;) ), I'll know to put "her" on your future instructables :)
