Tiny Storage Tubes




Introduction: Tiny Storage Tubes

About: a little heads-up: my earlier instructables might be badly written, as i wasn't very good at english back then

hello readers!

this time i'll show you how to make these tiny little storage tubes for storing extremely small things

Step 1: What You'll Need.

plastic "Q-tips"
a lighter
a pair of pliers
and a sharp knife
or if you are a coward that doesn't like knives, a pair of scissors

(no offense to the people out there that dont like knives)

Step 2: The Cut Is Back!

cut the ends of one q-tip

Step 3: Bring on the Heat!

heat up one end of the q-tip and quickly squeeze it with the pliers

Step 4: Trim It


use the knife to make the end look a bit nicer

Step 5: Toothpick Time

take one toothpick and cut it in half, then cut off most of the pointy end

Step 6: Allmost Done!!1

press the toothpick into the tube and cut it so about 5mm is sticking out

Step 7: Ur D0ne M8

now it's ready to use!

in this picture i put some spearmint seeds in it.

thanks for reading, see ya in my next in'able!

    Very nifty. I'm thinking about trying my hand at gardening soon. May have to make some of these for the smaller seeds :).
