Dumbwrap

Sumajin makes a little silicone thingy, called a Smartwrap, that holds your earbud wires and sells for five bucks. In his review of the product, the dude at iPoditude mentioned that you could probably make one out of a toilet paper tube. I have taken him at his word. Introducing the dumbwrap.

I wonder if different brands of glue would provide unique rigidity characteristics to the device?

Also, what brand of toilet paper did you use? I wonder if paper towel tubes would be better.

Regarding rigidity, I haven't experimented with glues, but I have tried different numbers of cardboard layers. The one shown in the picture has three layers, and it's a little too stiff. The first one I made was only two layers, and I like it a lot better.

So far, all the tubes I've used came from rolls of Ultra Quilted Northern. But I've also wondered how other kinds of cardboard would work. Kleenex boxes come to mind. I like the curvature of a tube, though, because it makes the final product a bit more interesting.

Incidentally, I made the dumbwraps last week, and so far they're both working fine.
