Do you keep losing your guitar picks? Do you want to make you own or just happen to have an old gift/ credit card laying around waiting to be made into something? Well, here’s how to make your own guitar picks. If you use old gift cards, you’ll get a pick about medium thickness; however, you can try other materials if you want to.
To start, you’ll need a guitar pick to use as a template, an old gift card, scissors, and a nail file. First, place the template pick onto the card and trace it. Next, cut out the pick carefully with the scissors. Don’t worry if it doesn’t follow the tracing exactly, that can be cleaned up with the nail file later. Once the pick is cut out, match it up with the template pick and file the new one to match. Once you have the shape you want, round out the edges a little so that there won’t be a scraping sound as you pick the strings.
There you have it, a brand new, quick and easy guitar pick! What’s good about this project is that you can make your picks any shape you want, with any material you want. Try out different shapes and materials, find what you like and go make some music.
