This is a toothpaste tube transformed into a change purse. Or it could be used as a secret hiding spot.
Maybe this instructable will motivate you to brush your teeth more.
Step 1: Materials
For the materials you will need:
- A empty toothpaste tube
- A zipper a bit shorter than the tube
Step 2: Wash Out Toothpaste Tube
Give your toothpaste tube a squeeze to open it up if it is flat like mine. Then wash it.
You can do this before or after cutting it.
Step 3: Cut the Toothpaste Tube
Cut a slit as long as your zipper in the toothpaste tube.
Then make it wider so your zipper will fit.
Remember you can always make the slit bigger but you can't make it smaller.
Step 4: Make Sure the Zipper Fits
Stick your zipper in the tube to see if it fits.
Make the slit bigger if it doesn't fit.
Step 5: Sew
First unzip your zipper.
Then sew up one side and down the other.
Step 6: Done
Enjoy your new change purse.
Here is one with a white zipper and one with a black zipper.
