Introduction: Reused Toothpaste Pencil Pouch

About: [ALL INSTRUCTABLES MADE WHEN 12 YEARS OLD, DO NOT JUDGE, NEW ACCOUNT "Neon_Bible"] I love to play sports like basketball because Im a baller :). I also like building anything AWESOME. I also like watching spor…

When I'm in school i am always getting my pencils stolen. Part of the problem is that my supplies are everywhere in my desk. I was inspired to make this by the "Bathroom Challenge Contest" (please vote for me). I have seen other people do pouches like these so i decided to give it a shot. It is very handy to carry and helps you organize. Plus, it looks cool!

Materials
Toothpaste bottle/container
tack
needle and thread
rubberband

Tools
scissors
band saw (optional but speeds things up)
pliers




Step 1: Opening and Cleaning of the Toothpaste

First thing we have to do is clean out the tube. Use the bandsaw to cut the top of and the circle holding it in place off. You will be left with a tube with a little bit of toothpaste in it. Cut a strait line down one horizontal side.

Step 2: Putting Together the Tube

Using the needle and thread, sew
the side you originally cut off. (sorry about the picture im really bad at sewing)

Step 3: Finishing Touches

Bend the tack so it is at a 90 degree angle.Create a hole in the middle of the tube and put the tack in. 
Then put a rubber band over it. To close the tube, stretch the rubberband under then over the tube back to the tack.

DONE! (well you aren't because you haven't voted for me yet :)

    Good job. It's too bad you didn't win. I'm going to make one to hold my Bo Shuriken.
