Guitar pick holder

I made an easy guitar pick holder for myself and i wanted to share it. It looks better than most of holders on the market and is basically free.
I taped it at the back of my guitar but you can put it almost anywhere.

Warning: if you didn't use a lighter before ask help from some one who did or if you are a child ask help from a grownup about the lighter. Don't apply to much pressure with the scissors, you can cut yourself if it gets out of your control.

And I am turkish so i can make mistake on writing part.

Step 1: Preperation

Picture of Preperation
1) Find or buy a hard plastic which is soft enough to bend with your hand. ( I used an ice cream cup )
2) You gonna need scissors to cut the plastic (or a knife but scissors are safer mostly )
3) Most plastics don't stay at the shape you bend them, you can use hair dryer or lighter for the heat ( I used lighter because it looks easier )

Step 2: Making

1) cut a piece of plastic ( it should be at the size of 1.5 times of your pick )
2) fold it into 2
3) use lighter to heat the folded corner of plastic (don't heat for long time or don't make it touch the flame, plastic can burn )
4) wait for it to get cold and try your pick in it
5) cut unnecessary part of plastic

Easy and so useful. Awesome!

This is a cool idea because honestly a lot of pick holders today are ugly and why have them take away from our guitar's look. With yours no one can even see that it's there. Great idea.

I use Ready Pick for the same reason, except the difference is it sticks on the front of the guitar and it is clear. The only reason I like having it on the front is for the really quick grab when I need it.

Yeah it's a good one!
Made three of them in a few minutes. What I did extra was to burn the sides too. they stick together and will hold the pick better. Not a fan of tape on my basses though.
