Steps:

  1. First find two identical lids. Open the lids, use your tweezers to gently grab the rubber stopper twisted in a circle and it will come out. Save it for later, you're going to reuse it.
  2. Two recycled ketchup lids.

  7. Turn both lids so that the open spouts are across from each other and the hinges are together. This will make your dispenser stronger and less likely to break. Apply the glue to the other lid and glue them together. Uou now have one unit.
  8. placing the paper between both lids.
     
  9. Take the rubber stopper that you removed and glue it to the dimple on the inside of the lid, do this to both lids. By doing this, none of the spices will leak into the lid which would make a mess when you open it. Basically you just relocated it. This is imperative on lids that have a very large opening. The smaller the opening, the less likely of any spills. It forms a gasket against the hole.
  10. Glueing the gasket to the lid.

  11. Now you want to check to make sure that you have a good seal so gently blow into one side of the lids that and see if any air comes out. If it does, reapply more glue to the seam. Do both sides to test.
  12. Now you can finish your dispenser by gluing the ribbon over the seam. This hides the seam and also reinforces the circle so there are no leaks. Label the top of your lids. Happy camping!
  13. Adding ribbon to the seam.
