Step 1: What You Will Need.

  • Paracord
  • mallet
  • flat head screwdriver
  • knife
  • Altoids tin
  • carabiner
  • Lighter
  • vice

Step 2: Mark Your Holes.

Mark where you will be putting your holes to put the Paracord through and make sure they are evenly spaced and don't go too far up or down and put it on a corner where it won't prevent the box from opening.

Step 3: Poke the Holes.

Put the Altoids tin with the marked corner facing up and gently tap the knife with the mallet to poke the holes.

Step 4: Create an Indent.

create an indent by putting the Altoids tin in the vice sideways and tap the portion between the metal gently tapping and pushing the piece out.

Step 5: File It Down.

File the edges making sure nothing is sharp and the bumps that might have formed along the indent.

Step 6: Put the Paracord Through the Hole and Tie the Knot.

You will need to insert the Paracord into the hole of the indent you made and make it even on both sides.

Tie a knot with both ends of the strings cut off the excess and use the lighter to melt it together.

Step 7: Put on the Carabiner and Finish.

    Why not drill the holes instead? Then maybe add a small rubber grommet in each and thread the paracord through them?

    You could shove some surugu into the holes around the paracord to keep small items inside
