Picture of SD card case
I take lots of pictures that I use for the paper models that I design for ss42.com. When I am out taking pictures I need to swap out SD cards in my camera. But the SD card cases are different sizes and they take up too much space.

Step 1: The supplies

I found that the case for Sunstar GUM soft tooth picks http://www.sunstargum.com/index.php?id=3791 are the perfect size to hold 2 SD cards side by side. For me, I have bunches of the cases left over after I use up the picks. You can find these at any drug store for $3.xx or a 10 pack at the 99¢ store.

Nice work with the instructions. Like having easy access to downloadable PDF. I got lost browsing around ss42 - lot of interesting stuff there...

I have found it helpful when doing some stop motion animation work.
The SD card has integrated wi-fi. No need to switch out the card - can automatically upload to your local machine or sharing location. As the files can automatically move to the new location - you always have room on your card.

This is a great idea. but wouldn't it be simpler to put a mark on the back of the case so you know its the back, then flip FULL cards over label down?

if you really dont have the space anymore you could just switch to micro SD cards

then you can just leave the adapter (wich is a normal SD card with a slot for the micro) inside the camera and use a system like what you made but smaller to hold more cards

That sounds like a good idea. I don't know if I can manage to avoid dropping micro SD cards in the field but I will give it a good think.
hmm yeah they are very small... maybe making brightly colored slipcovers for them wil allow you to easily find them if you accidently drop them , you could make the slipcovers two different colors to indicate if they are full or empty so you just turn them around when they'r full

Great origami!;-) I've found that an empty dental floss box works nicely for storing sd cards too. Although not as organized as your case, you can put quite a few into one dental floss box. Well done and well documented! 5 stars!
This is awesome. Two great ideas in one instructable. :)
Great idea! Nice job with the design!
