Introduction: Bullet Shell Case

About: I am a 14 year old who likes to make stuff, shoot guns and blow things up. I really like to make blowguns. and I love collecting rocks and coins.

I found out how to make these small containers a few months ago. When i first started making these it took me about 5 min. to make one, but after making about 10 I can now make one in about 30 seconds.

This. is my first instuctable so if you have any ideas of how I can make this and other instructables better please tell me your ideas in the comments at the bottom of the page.

Step 1: Get What You Need

  • 1. old shot bullet shells DO NOT USE LOADED BULLET SHELLS
  • 2. very sharp knife...a utility knife or razor blade will also work
  • 3. torch... a lighter might work but i never tried it
  • 4. pliers

Hint: use shells that have plastic on the inside, not cardboard.

get your stuff to together and lets get started

Step 2: Watch the Movie

set one bullet shell aside for the next step next, click on the movie file then click "Open with" you will then have to wait a minute or two for it to load. when your are done with this step it should look something like the picture above.

Step 3:

Get the bullet shell you set aside in the last step and a knife. Now with the knife cut off the little bit at the top of the shell that looks rippled. you can cut it down shorter if you want.

Step 4: Finish

put the to parts together by pushing the metal over the plastic. you are done!!!

Step 5: Make Lots More

here are some ideas of what you could use them for: match holder, needle holder. And just about any thing you can fit in it.
