I couldn't take it any more I saw somewhere on this board that someone had made guitar picks out of fake credit cards and I just had to try it!! So here they are!! I love them! I am always losing picks.

These are neat! Did you use the fake plastic ones only? Sometimes I get some cardboard-y ones, but I wouldn't think they'd hold. Did you cut them out by hand? How do they hold up? I don't play the guitar (I have one, but it just sort of sits there and makes me feel guilty), but I have some friends who might like these!

Thanks for sharing!

Wow! they look fantastic!
I'm going to have to collect those credit card things from now on Cheesy
My boyfriend plays guitar, and he never uses the Jack Daniels ones I bought him because he doesn't want to damage them, but i'm sure he'd have no issue with these!

Those are really nice.  The edges look really clean.

This is a really nifty project. I too am alway losing my picks. This seems like a good use for when you use up gift cards and never put an money back on them. Instead of just throwing them away, i could make guitar picks out of them. You'd need a super sharp exacto knife though.

I had a few of those and I actually just used scissors and it worked fairly well, I also sanded off the rough edges with an old nail file.
 I am not sure what I am going to do with them, They will be nice to have when I run out of other picks and need them, but I do think I will do some weird jewelry stuff! Wink
