Magic Aluminum Foil / Cigarette Case

Magic Aluminum Foil
Magic Aluminum Foil

For smokers, it is annoying to find a trash can whenever they finish smoking, so there is tons of cigarette butts on the street.
To make a change, I will start from transforming the cigarette box into a trash can for cigarette butts.
An aluminum foil is utilized to make a place for storing cigarette butts and to keep them away from new cigarettes.
As a result, each time you buy a box of cigarettes, you get a free and portable ashtray at the same time!
