Introduction: Make a Pick Holder From an Ice Breakers Sours Container

About: I enjoy being creative and sharing my ideas with others therefore I have made a few instructables! :)

Greetings! This instructable will show you that you can use an Ice Breakers Sours container to store your guitar/bass picks. It's simple, it's easy but why not share this with you? Also, why waste your hard earned cash on some stupid guitar pick storage box [that is most likely over-priced] when you can make your own? It's cheap, simple, easy and effective. Save some cash and get creatin'. Let's begin!

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: MATERIALS NEEDED:

You will need the following:

1) An Ice Breaker Sours container [OR any other container that you want to use]

2) Some guitar picks or bass picks [OR other things you may want to store. REMEMBER: this is not only for guitar/bass picks. You can use it to what you feel is right.]

3) Some Paper Towel

4) A little soap + water

Step 2: STEP 1 - OPENING THE CONTAINER/CLEANING IT:

Empty out the container of sweets. Then pop open the top of the container. You want to open it so you can clean it before you store things. I opened the larger part of my container [the flip-top] then i was able to make it come apart easier. After you get the top open, you can use some soap and water and dry it with a paper towel or cloth. It was fairly easy to open; just use common sense.

Step 3: STEP 2 - RE-ASSEMBLE/ADD STUFF:

Ok now that you have 1) emptied out the sweets, 2) opened it up, 3) cleaned it, 4) dried it. you now have to 5) re-assemble it and that's very simple. Once it's back together you can now ADD your guitar/bass picks [or whatever you want]. There is still one more step though . . .

Step 4: STEP 3 - TAKE OFF STICKERS:

You may [or may not] want to take off the Ice Breakers Sours stickers [or whatever stickers or labels you have on your container]. I chose to take off the stickers so I can add my own in the future. Remember you can 1) personalize it to what you want [add stickers or draw on it, whichever], and 2) add anything that you want to it. it's not just for guitar/bass picks like I said earlier. HAVE FUN!!

    dude, I got some suction cups, and put them on the inside so the picks stay put and put some on the back so it;s mountable, i'd make an instructable but ican't get pictures...
