Introduction: Hiding Small Things Inside a Cigarette Box(Cigarette Idea 2 of 5) - Entry for Hidden Spaces Contest
Cigarette Idea 2 of 5
Hiding small things like USB pen drives , sim cards, memory cards , small jewellery , etc. inside a cigarette box
Things You Need:
- A box of cigarettes
- USB pen drives , sim cards, memory cards , small jewellery , etc. (items to hide )
- A empty matchbox OR staple pin box (any small cardboard box)
- Cling film (plastic food wrap)
- A scale / Ruler
- Hair Dryer OR any hot air blower (OPTIONAL)
PS : SMOKING IS BAD FOR HEALTH.
Step 1: Possible Items Diffenently Arranged in a Box
Choose ONE packing style and your goods.
Pack your items in cling film and arrange them in any box of your choice like I'v done.
The reason for that is so that they dont make a rattling sound if shaken.
A cigarette box is supposed to be a silent killer not a rattle snake :)
Make sure the weight isn't unbelievably heavy or the entire purpose would be defeated just by lifting up the box of cigarettes.
I chose a micro sd card, an empty sim card outer , some cheap junk jewellery diamonds .
Step 2: Wrap Up Your Stuff
Wrap up your loaded package with cling film as you do not want the cardboard to leave any smell / difference of taste etc to the smoker or viewer.
Step 3: And the Cigarette Becomes Shorter
Carefully empty the last row of six/ seven cigarettes from the back of the box and put a pair of tweezers or something to hold them in place.
Cut Six or Seven Cigarettes from the last row (Depending on the packing of the manufacturer) MINUS the width of the secret box as shown in the image.
When all are cut wrap them up with cling film till mid length as shown as they are a little difficult to handle singularly.
Blow Dry them to make them snug.
DO NOT ADD ANY ADHESIVE / GLUE AS IT MIGHT REACT WITH THE CIGARETTE FLAVOR WHICH MAY RESULT IN DIFFERENCE OF TASTE / SMELL TO THE SMOKER .
Step 4: Managing the Finale
Put the boxed arrangement back to its original position.
I found it easier to take out the remaining cigarettes and putting them inside one by one after inserting the box.
People generally have the tendency to take the first cigarette most easily accessible to them, so keep the box full otherwise your treasure comes rolling out in the open.
See , as good as new.

Step 5: HOW TO REMEMBER
This question would come up and it did , by a senior member about how to remember which is the treasure box or the special fire stick .....
and the answer from my side:
1.Don't be generous with your cigarettes :)
2.Sometimes there are special packing/ edition launched by your brand ,or a little variation on the box, or a different flavour , keep a couple of those handy,even though the flavour might be horrible :D, to remind us that there is something special in that box.
3.SALT YOUR CIGARETTE BUTT: the best idea for not burning up your assest are to dip and rub the cigarette butt in some very finely powdered salt for about 5mins,the filter absorbs some of the salt flavour.
So when it comes to ur lips,u remember its not the usual stuff.I just tried it and it does not show seperately and doesn't leave a smell too,plus its food grade.I'll add these steps to all the 5 ideas,thank you for reminding me.
Do let me know if you think of anything else.
