Looking for a holder for thumb tips. A holder that would hold 2 or 3 thumb tips and attach inside a pocket with either Velcro or snaps.

I got one at a lecture which was just made of thin plastic.
Pretty sure you could make something simple with some cardboard and safety pins, but I guess you're looking for something more permanent.

I use film catridges as TT holders. You know those old school non-DSLR cameras where you use a ROLL of FILMS that you'd need to develope after shooting? Well, the plastic tubes that holds the film roll works very well as TT holders. I've used them before when my act needed them. I don't perform that routine anymore.

Hope it helps.

I'll bet you could find some sort of bandolier that was originally designed to hold film cannisters or shotgun shells. For instance, here's a shell holder made for the buttstock of a shotgun -- I'll bet you could adapt it for your intended use.
It's still magic even if you know how it's done.

David Oliver has one that he makes for your pants or jacket pocket.

Just came across this thread, I made a holder for multiple TTs.
It a large version of the traditional thimble holder.
Holds up to 4 TTs, can be pinned into packet, under jacket, wherever.
Can I post a photo or is this too public?

You might look into older books dealing with hold outs for thimble routines...something might work as is or trigger an idea.

Get an eye screw, a rubber stopper which fits your tt and a safety pin. Screw the eye screw into the top of the stopper . Insert the pin through the eye. Make as many holders as you need pin them inside your pocket. I bought one of these a convention. It is not my design. All parts available at Home depot or lowes. Glenn
