How To: DIY Guitar Picks
Both of my roommates play guitar, and they go through quite a lot of guitar picks. Instead of buying new picks all of the time, I decided to make them their own “custom” guitar picks using old credit cards!
What You Will Need:
1. Old credit cards or other plastic cards (insurance cards, membership cards, etc). Just remember to be careful with the personal information on your cards.
How To Do It:
1. Trace an old guitar pick several times on your credit card. You should be able to fit 4-5 picks on each card. I smudged mine a little bit, but they should look like this:
2. Then, cut them out.
3. If your edges are rough, you can sand the edges lightly.
Isn’t this such a simple project? My roommates are going to love them because they are fun colors and they won’t feel so bad if they lose them! Do you have a musician in your life that could you make these for?
