Intro: Earbud Keeper (out of Old Packaging!)
Earlier today, I bought a pair of earbuds. The package was a pain in the butt to open, and I knew I would probably have issues with my earbuds tangling up. So, I thought: If the package is that hard to open, that must mean it's really sturdy! Plus, it would be awesome to have a free earbud holder. Thus came this Instructable. Enjoy!
Step 1: Materials
You will need:
-Good, sharp scissors
-A pair of earbuds
-Old plastic packaging (like the clamshell type)
-Tape (depending on design)
Step 2: Plan Your Design
The first design I came up with was way too small to fit the cord of my earbuds. So, keep that in mind as you draw your design on the plastic with the Sharpie.
Step 3: Cut Out Your Design
Next, you need to cut out your design. That's why you have a good pair of scissors, don't you? Clamshell packaging can be very hard to open sometimes. So, cut the plastic along the lines you drew.
Step 4: Tape Stuff Together
Depending on the design you came up with, you may need tape. So, this step is just here to tell you to tape. Easiest step in here (besides designing).
Step 5: Done!
This is my finished product. Cool, huh? Yours will likely not look the same. If you want to share yours, just post it below. Hopefully this Instructable helped you use some of that pesky plastic packaging and keep your earbuds from tangling.
