Leave a Cent After You Went

Introduction: Leave a Cent After You Went

The next time you go to the bathroom, why not leave something behind that a fortunate person might be lucky to notice? Instead of leaving it out in the open, why not try to put it in an obscure place that only observant people may find? Here is a way to create a small space for your small gift.

Step 1: What You Will Need

The only thing you will need is a toilet paper roll that's already being used. You will also need some change or anything light and small to be your gift. If you put too much, like more than a quarter for example, the roll will unroll and the pocket will fall to the ground. After you have those things together, lets start making the pocket.

Step 2: Create the Pocket

Start by unrolling about three sheets of toilet paper uncut. Fold the toilet paper in half, bringing two sheets over the fold. Fold diagonally along the bottom, and fold diagonally the other way.There should be a small space after those folds. Tuck in the excess toilet paper there, and then your done!

Step 3: Leave a Gift

Now that you have your pocket, place your gift inside and hope someone will notice. I placed a quarter in for my gift, but you can place something like a business card or some gum instead. If the next person fails to notice and uses the toilet...

Well, lets just say that you won't really know where your gift may end up.

Step 4: Spread the Love!

Now that you learned how to make this, go out and leave behind all the gifts you want! This can be a fun thing to do at restaurants, or something presentable in a hotel. Thank you for reading, and please subscribe!

    If you want to hide it, why don't you just flush the coin down the toilet?

    This was made for a small joke actually, so there was no point of secrets.

    This is just a way of amusement that you can use on people when they use the bathroom. Flushing it would ruin the point of giving it as a gift.

    I knew it was a joke. I was hoping you would reply as "They can't find the coin in the sewer." or something like that, but I guess you didn't. :\

    It's got so many possibilities.

    (mid you, having any TP in there at all is often lucky for shared-facilities...)
