Cardboard Battery Dispenser




About: Beginner maker who loves stargazing.

Hi, everyone! It's been a long while since my last (and first) instructables lol This is a simple project.

Battery is an important power source for many electronic gadgets and projects in this website. So I decide to make a battery dispenser to organize batteries for every maker.

This tiny one can hold up to 14 AA batteries inside!
