Strum your way into the heart of your guitar lover and become a rock star gift giver to boot! Come along and I’ll show you all the cool ways you can create custom guitar picks with the Pick Punch.
If you can use a hole punch you are on your way to creating custom guitar picks with the Pick Punch! It cuts through a variety of thick materials like packaging plastic, old credit or gift cards, and even metal! Can’t wait to get your hands on this super cool musical tool? You can find your Pick Punch HERE. But don’t stop there! Uncommon Goods has unique gifts for anyone and everyone like the Aquafarm (a fish tank that grows herbs WHAT?!?…I know coolness!) and Kinetic Sand where you can make amazing sand sculptures with no trip to the beach required! This is something to get very excited about if you are an irish lass like me
How cool is that? With a Pick Punch you can recycle packaging plastic and unused “Jelly of the Month Club” gift cards into custom guitar picks. This will be music to your ears…and the planet’s
Check out these easy ideas for creating custom guitar picks with your Pick Punch…
Packaging Plastic Guitar Picks
When it comes to choosing the right packaging plastic for creating guitar picks the thicker the better. I call this “Government Plastic” (civilians can’t buy it). If it takes all your might and makes you mutter four letter words when trying to get whatever is enclosed in it out then you’ve found the perfect guitar pick making plastic! (Electronics and batteries are often packaged in this type of plastic)
Cover your packaging plastic with decorative tape or stickers to create cool custom picks. I used Negative film strip tape from Industrial Chic to create these scenic picks.
Flip your Pick Punch over to make sure your image is lined up the way you want it before punching.
Using Alcohol Inks is a quick and easy way to add blended color to packaging plastic picks. They are available in over 28 colors and can be combined for a truly endless amount of customizable color. Not only that , but Alcohol inks dry in seconds allowing you to become a colorful guitar pick making machine!
Stamp over your colored picks with Black Archival Ink for an even more customized look.
Metal Guitar Picks
Yup, you heard that right. Pick Punch cuts through metal! I used scrap sheet metal for my pick but you can find metal stamping blanks at most craft store.
Hammer your metal pick to add texture.
Stamp it with Archival ink or Metal stamps to add sentiments and imagery. Want a colored metal pick? Just add alcohol ink!
Credit/Gift Card Guitar Picks
Here’s a unique way to curb spending, turn your credit cards into guitar picks and strum your way to financial freedom! Or just use an expired card like I did.
Gift cards and Hotel room key cards work just as well for pick punching. Commemorate each stop on tour with a Guitar pick from the Holiday Inn the Ritz and beyond! Bring your Pick Punch along and autograph Punched Picks for fans at your next show!
If you have an old license or ID card lying around Punch a truly unique-to-you pick of your likeness. I’m sure my BIL will be pleased as “punch” with this custom “pick” of his younger self.
I had a blast making custom Guitar Picks with the Pick Punch (get yours HERE). It’s the perfect mix of “art” and soul! I know my BIL is going to love this gift along with the cool picks I made for him.
