What you need:
A circuit board (preferably kind of thin)

A file
A pencil

Step 2: Tracing and Cutting

Put your pick on your circuit board and trace around it with a pencil or pen, then cut it out with snips or scissors (scissors may not my strong enough).

Step 3: Smoothing

Grab your file and start filing the edges to make pretty

Step 4: Optional Step. Bringing Out the Copper

If you want to bring out the copper, just sand both sides with sand paper (not too low of a grit), and do that till it's copper and green. I like to do this because it looks purty

Step 5: You're Done!

I hope you liked this project. Be sure to tell me if I wasn't clear about something. Just remember that these have SMALL amounts of lead in them. So don't eat them. Not that you would, but I'm just saying. It's not a good idea. But there's not enough lead for it to be lethal. These picks are completely safe to use. But don't lick/eat them.
