Things you require
  • An old case of big eye contact lenses

2. The plastic of big eye contact lens cases is brittle and prone splitting so avoid exerting too much of the pressure.

3. The slots in each compartment should be big enough to accommodate the handles of the headphones entirely. If the slots are not properly cut; the caps will not screw on properly on the case of big eye contact lens.
