Upcycle the top off a plastic bottle into a jump ring opening/closing tool
I has purchased jump ring ring tool off of E-Bay and couldn't locate it when I went to work on a project so I decided to DIY my own using the top off of a 20 oz soda bottle.

To use, you put the jump ring in the opening and twist to open. Same thing to close it; put it in the opening and then twist back.
