Guitar Picks - How To Make Your Own Guitar Picks
If you have some stiff plastic credit card type cards laying around (used up gift cards, etc.), you can recycle them by making your own guitar picks. All you need are some plastic cards, scissors, one guitar pick (for a template), a pencil, and sandpaper.
With this simple do-it-yourself technique, you can have original and attractively colored guitar picks. This is not only easy and fun, but a sustainable practice. You are turning trash into useful tools!
Make some for gift giving as well. A guitar player always enjoys receiving the gift of some new guitar picks. They make great stocking stuffers at Christmas time!
