I am pretty tired of loosing my good guitar picks.
Constantly having to buy them is quite an annoyance, so I looked around for some possible things to use. i found quite a few. Let's have a look, shall we?
Step 1: PAPER
You can take a flashcard (anything paper is fine, i found a flashcard was both size fit and more durable), and then bend it down the center. Tear along the crease. Take it once more and bend the top to the bottom. Make a crease. Open it up again and fold the top into the middle, and the bottom into the middle as well. Next, fold the two flaps together. Now, you should have a narrow strip. Now, fold it like a paper football, giving you a triangle. Take a piece of tape and tape down the excess to the side. Pictures are added to help explain.
Step 2: Gift Cards
Another one i found was taking an old card, something like a dead Credit Card, an old useless Gift Card, ect.
You can get about 4 or 5 good picks from a gift card. (srry for no pics ]: )
Step 3: Others.
Other things I found were miscellaneous objects like
-pretty much anything flat, small, easy to hold, lightweight, and non-metallic.
THINGS TO NOT USE
ANYTHING METAL, or whatever coins are made of (sometimes can make unnessecary noises on an electric, but if you're willing to take the chance, I am not liable.)
ANYTHING THAT MIGHT BREAK OR SHATTER i.e.- Glass
ANYTHING THAT MAY CUT YOU
