And yet another nearly impossible-to-notice stash. This stash was invented by my friend Gur, this instructable is his original design.

Step 1: Materials

1. 5 gum
2. glue
3. knife or other cutting tool
4. something to stash

Step 2: Prepare Box

1. Take out gum
2. Pull out the paper inside the box
3. (optional step) reinforce box to prevent crushing

Step 3: Make Left and Right Sections

1. Take 3 pieces of gum and cut 2 in half.
2. Glue the pieces of gum together so that the tops are aligned.
3. Repeat this step to make the left and right sections.

Step 4: Make Center Section

1. Take 3 pieces of gum and cut 2 in half.
2. Discard (or chew) 1 of the half pieces.
3. Glue

Step 5: Assembly

1. Glue left, center, and right sections together
2. Insert into box
3. Add insert a real piece of gum in case anybody asks for a stick

Nice job! I just bough some 5 gum but I ate a few pieces so I don't have enough to make this. I will buy some more ASAP and make this stash!

another idea would be to keep the used gum in whole form and then somehow hid the real gum from view, then the person asking for gum would get a used peice and eat the piece! hhahaha its soooo evil

Im a bit confused, why would you make a secret stash in a gum box?

author
CurtosNoirDesign made it!(author)2008-06-22

so you can keep your stash on you, cause no one would think to check a fake gum pack

True, but only if they've been to Instructables, and even then only if they've seen this.

lol my dad is a cop (for 20 years) and he's the one who told me about this place... so yeah... I do believe they've been here before.

author

Lol, you don't live in Utah do you? That would suck if cops in my area figured this out...

Salt Lake City, its kinda boring here, unless you know a few "creative" games... Maybe I should make an Instructable on flaming tennis...

me and my friends like to play quarters. (It is a game where you spin a quarter and depending on whether or not the coin lands heads or tails other person lays their knuckles on the tables and the other slams the quarter into thier knuckles.)

author
absolute+zero made it!(author)2009-02-19

we played that, but we spun the quarter and you had to flick it while spinning and have it keep goin, an u got hit if you knocked it down

author
The+Mollusk made it!(author)2009-02-11

Ya I played that in middle shcool. It didn't really hurt but it was great when blood would spatter over the table and the crowd would freak out. Ah... It was great fun, but it gave me little scars.

I did it like a week ago.

author
aliceownsj00 made it!(author)2008-06-23

haha you'd be surprised how smart they are to look through things... if they really feel like finding your stash, they'll find it lol but just don't act weird about it and they probably wont do anything

author
The+Mollusk made it!(author)2008-06-23

Sounds like the voice of experience lol

author
aliceownsj00 made it!(author)2008-06-23

Eh, I hid cigarettes during high school haha pot stayed at home.

author
The+Mollusk made it!(author)2008-06-23

Lol, did you ever get busted by your dad?

author
aliceownsj00 made it!(author)2008-06-23

nope, but that was many many years ago... haven't smoked cigs or pot for years lol

author
The+Mollusk made it!(author)2008-06-23

Good for you (both for not getting busted and for quiting cigarettes).

author
CurtosNoirDesign made it!(author)2008-06-22

What if the cop wants some gum?

author
The+Mollusk made it!(author)2008-06-23

Then give him the middle piece, that will convince him that its a real pack of gum and nothing else.

author
chardster made it!(author)2008-07-13

What if the cops partner wants some gum too?

author
catboo22 made it!(author)2009-07-02

you could have the pattern be 4,4,4 so there would be 3 peices of real gum but also less stash space

author
Obito made it!(author)2009-05-06

you like stashing stuf don't you! =P

author
The+Mollusk made it!(author)2009-05-09

Its more just that I'm bored and I want to make things that require a great deal of skill (not that this does), and to me making something camoflauged to the rest of the world is fun and artful.

author
volquete made it!(author)2009-06-09

this is cool.

"Discard (or chew)" I would rather chew, thanks. no need to be wasteful.

author
mashedpotato13 made it!(author)2009-03-16

Obviously!

author
chardster made it!(author)2008-07-13

Why cant you just glue all of the half-pieces to the back of the box to make more space?

author
The+Mollusk made it!(author)2008-07-14

Go for it. I didn't do it because it would be harder to get to my stash, but post some pics, let me know how it goes for you.

author
