The Best Way To Make Recycled Guitar Picks From Common Household Items
If you own a guitar you no doubt have used a pair of scissors or a box knife (dangerous) to cut your own version of a pick from an expired gift card, an old vinyl record or a thick plastic juice bottle.
If you need to cut your own pic, the simplest way to get it right is to make a paper template from an existing guitar pick. Of course if you're looking to make your own pick there is a good chance you don't have one to make a template from. Fortunately that doesn't matter if you have one of these new gadgets from Pick Punch.
The Pick Punch - is a cool gadget that instantly makes you a do-it-yourself guitar pick maker. The Pick Punch is as easy to use as a stapler, works like a stamping press, and will have you punching out dozens of standard size guitar picks in minutes. All you need to do is choose which recyclable materials you want to make your guitar picks from and you'll be strumming a tune in no time.
The "Pick Punch" will make an ideal gift for anyone in your family that uses guitar picks while playing and if you or your guitarist are actively into recycling, the "Pick Punch" becomes even more valuable as a gift by covering more than one personal interest... "You are so thoughtful"
