(at least for splashes and a quick swim!)...First world problem: you go for a walk on the beach, and you arrive at the beach bar ... with no money.

Safe for splashes, kayaking, and even a short swim!
|fits bills and coins :)|
|... and closes tightly|
what you need: supplies

* drill (or you can use a large screw)
how to make a waterproof beach money carrier // tutorial:
|Use Goo Gone to remove the label and the writing on the cap.|
(it takes a little of elbow grease for the cap, but it will come perfectly white)
|I used a drill, but a large screw will do in just a little extra time.|
Drill a hole in the middle of the cap.
|Burn the edges of the nylon cord to prevent unravelling|
|with the help of a toothpick, fold the cord in half, and snug both ends into the cap,.|
(ends into the inside of the cap)
|Make a knot|
|slip the knot close to the cap and apply a generous amount of|
glue around the cord - then pull the cord so that the knot will be tight onto the cap
|apply a nice amount of glue onto the outside of the cap, too|
|make another knot on the outside of the cap, too.|
|Let dry for few hours and you can bring your money to the beach!|
