Introduction: How to Protect Your Cigarette Papers
Ever buy cigarette papers and notice that they don't have a thing to keep 'em closed? It's maddening and even frustrating...Well, to me it is/was. Well this is so easy and simple, I don't see why the companies just didn't do this in the first place! I don't promote this for smoking weed or anything illegal. I actually use the papers for the tobacco that is left from my cigars. What you do with cigarette papers are your business.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
1 pair of scissors [big or small, whichever]
1 packet of cigarette papers [of course]

Step 1: STEP 1: Get Cigarette Papers:
Any covenience store sells these like Corner Stores, or Grocery Stores, or "Bodegas". The cigarette papers usually cost $1 or $1.50 a pack. The only kind I have used so far is Bambu and Big Bambu. Bambu is the smaller one and Big Bambu of course is the larger one. I don't know how other papers fare but for this instructable I am using Bambu [which is the "smaller" one].
NOTE: The picture for this one is actually "Big Bambu" but the one I use for this is the "regular Bambu" meaning the small one. But, this is just for a visual. Don't worry, no matter which one you decide to use is fine.
Step 2: STEP 2: Go Get Some Scissors:
What you will need to get now is a pair of scissors. I suggest using small scissors like for trimming beards but you can use what ever scissors you have. The small ones allow you to get in there better to cut but your choice.
Step 3: STEP 3: Cut the Right Side:
Now what you wanna do is cut the right edge of the front flap to where the line is. you are just taking off a small part of the right side. and with that you can tuck the flap into the booklet. Cut the whole right side of the front flap from bottom to top. "It's so easy a cave man can do it", yup just had to say it. Geico would be proud lol.
Notice in the picture [with the words] that the words are cut off? That is because I cut the right side. Also, I went a LITTLE bit past the black line actually but it was actually on the line so it worked out anyway.
Step 4: STEP 4: Now Tuck in the Flap and You're Done!:
Once you are done cutting the right side, tuck the front flap into the booklet and SUCCESS! [for mine it was where you see the words: DISTRIBUTED BY:"]. Now you can protect the cigarette papers from harm. This was an under 2 minutes project, even if that. Good luck and success to you.
NOTE: You can probably do this for other things too just be inventive. Also note that for the Big Bambu I had to fold the cigarette paper up and THEN put the flap into the slot. So that's really not a biggie and doesn't cause a problem. So you can do that as well, if you have paper in the way ;) Notice in the 2nd picture I show that I folded the paper UP.
BEST OF LUCK!! Hope you enjoyed it.
