If you don't have the necessary storage means, your Bakugan balls and cards will become mixed up and disorganized -- making it harder for you to sort through your stash. A basic Bakugan box has special compartments in it for housing all of your game pieces, and you can make one yourself at home using a small cardboard box. By keeping the pieces organized, you will be able to tell which balls and cards you already possess, and which ones you still need to collect for the game.
- 11.5-inch by 7-inch by 3.75-inch cardboard box
- 4-foot by 4-foot piece of cardboard
- 3 paper towel tubes
- 1 Bakugan card
- Bakugan logos
Set the 11.5-inch by 7-inch by 3.75-inch cardboard box on top of the 4-foot by 4-foot piece of cardboard. Trace around the box onto the cardboard sheet using a pencil. Trace a second and third time so that you have three traced rectangles on the cardboard sheet. Cut out the three rectangles with scissors.
Hold a ruler up to one paper towel tube. Mark one inch spacings along the tube from one end to the other. Repeat for the two other paper towel tubes. Use scissors to cut the paper towel tubes at every one inch mark. When you're finished cutting you will end up with several one inch paper towel tube rings.
Set one Bakugan card flat on one corner of the rectangular sheet of cardboard. Trace around the card with the pencil. Repeat for the other two cardboard sheets. This gives you the dimensions of the cards so that you can make a spot in the box that is large enough for storing them.
Apply glue to the bottoms of the paper towel rings. Glue them onto the rectangular cardboard sheets, making sure to not glue any in the card space. You can, however, glue around the space you drew for the cards. You can fit several rings on each sheet of cardboard. Allow the glue to dry for 30 minutes.
Fill each glued paper towel ring with your Bakugan balls -- one ball per ring. Place your cards in the designated spot. Place the cardboard sheets into the cardboard box. If you only have enough cards and balls to fill one sheet of cardboard, start with that. If you have enough to fill up all three sheets of cardboard, layer the pieces of cardboard on top of each other inside the box.
Glue Bakugan logos to the lid or sides of the cardboard box for decoration.
