Guitar Picks From Sushi Box

I had a sushi take-out box that had a beautiful pattern on it.  I tried to grow moss in it.  I can't seem to get that right.  So I decided it needed to be something else.  I cut off the walls and used my iron (& oven) to flatten it.  The oven shrunk it and made it a bit thicker, too.  (Which I needed!)  Then I used my xacto knife to cut out the guitar picks.  I filed the edges smooth to finish them off.

I gave the first one to Travis.  While I made more, he played his bass guitar for me.  :)  

I apologize for the dark shot!

I ended up making 2 of them into a pair of earrings.  And I kept 2 for me to play with.  (pictured)  I did have more than those, but I already started giving them away before I remembered to take a picture!  LOL

Those are fantastic and such a great way to recycle something :)

Um, I want one. No really, I do. Tell Travis to give 'em up. I'm playing bass at even this month, and I need some super smokin' sushi picks to get me through the night.

Okay, fine.

But really? Those are way rad.

Thanks! :)

I'm pretty bad at not posting my little projects like this, but these made me too happy to not post about! :)

These are beautiful! I included them in a round-up of green crafts in an article today. http://www.examiner.com/green-culture-in-mankato/green-craft-round-up-story-cubes-milk-jug-storm-trooper-helmets-and-more

I hope it's okay that I used your photo in the article (with credit, of course). If not, let me know and I'll replace it.
