Introduction: How to Make a Duct Tape Cigarette Case
Step 1: Gather Supplies
scotch tape (not in picture)
Step 2: Make a Template
Step 3: Tape It Up
I sort of messed up on cutting the bottom edge where the box closes so I folded the top at the same angle so it would come together without looking too weird when it's finished.
Step 4: Add the Lighter Holder
I wrapped the top part of my lighter with the tape because it will not be covered completely by the pocket it's in. With another square of cardboard, wrap it around the lighter and secure with tape to the box. Make sure that the lighter top aligns with the top of the box and tape up the bottom so it doesn't slide down. Also, if you're left handed, you can put the pocket on the other side to make lighting the lighter easier.
Sometimes I don't use the cardboard for the pocket. Usually I just use more duct tape. Either way I make it so the lighter is removable because most of the time these boxes hold up longer than the lighter has fluid. Depending on how often you smoke or whatever. Also if someone wants to borrow your lighter, they sometimes don't really get how to use it when its attached to the box.
Step 5: Tape Up the Sides
As simple as it sounds. Tape up the sides. You can get really crazy trying to make sure all the lines or patterns line up but in the end, its hardly noticeable because the end product is cool anyway. Also its better to cover as much as possible with the tape because the the last piece of tape that goes on the wide side is not as wide as the whole box.
After I got the sides taped up, I wrapped the lighter holder in.
