If you're going to be fussy, this is not a frisbee, since it does not involve the famous pie-tins.

It is, however, eminently modifiable, decorateable (is that a word? It is now.), and suitable for using indoors.

Even better, it can be educational (see the last step).

Print one out with your corporate logo, then if you're caught playing with one of these at work, tell them you're using your initiative and testing out a potential marketing tool...

Step 1: The template

As is my wont, this is made from a single A4 sheet, this time of light cardstock (about 160gsm, if you need to know).

I have included a PDF drawn up from a scan of my original sketch, including two versions - one decorated, one plain and awaiting decoration by your good self.

Print out the one you want, then cut it out, including the seven rectangles at the top.

(If you are going to decorate your frisbee by hand, do so before you cut it out.)

where did you get the tiny earth magnets?
Ebay, but it is a lot easier to use pegs to clamp the paper.
I remember making one of these a few years ago, back when I used to get DIY ideas from library books...
One in a book? <br> <br>Spooky - I created this by myself. <br>
Yes, a rather old book. I don't remember anything else about the book, other than that it was full of cardboard and paper flying things.
could it be called a throwing disk?
It certainly could - the word &quot;Frisbee&quot; is like the word &quot;Hoover&quot; (in the UK). It started as an early brand of an object (throwing disc, vacuum cleaner), and ended up as the word to mean the object.
I have an old kit of things like this from AGES ago, that has something almost exactly like this, but with the center cut out to form a ring, it flies great!<br>
what happens to cardboard when it 's chewed up & gets soggy wet....... Do you have any more inventions.... wouldlike to see something that lasts peace
It's a frisbee, not a pancake. Don't eat your toys!
I guess you could try making this from corex or similar, but it was posted with the <em>cardboard</em> contest in mind...<br/>
how do you vote for this in the Gorilla Glue Cardboard Contest ?
Unfortunately, voting is over - they're just finishing off the judging now. Thanks for the thought, though.

(Those codes stopped working quite some time ago...)
why are they called rare-earth there in vast supply
The elements in them (neodymium etc) are not as common in the Earth's crust as other elements.
ohh that makes sence
could i use couragated cardboard (im so sorry to bother you)
I don't know. The folding might be harder work to get straight, but it would last longer.<br><br> Try it, let us know.
ok i will
how do i make the blocks one picture zigzag next ?????
oh i see
or two pieces of paper if i dont have a4
Im sorry Kiteman, you seem to have forgotten to add your video.<br/><br/>Otherwise, very good, I love its simple design.<br/><br/><sub><sup><sub><sup><sub><sup><sub><sup><sub><sup><sub><sup><sub><sup><sub><sup> Really, 160gsm is classified as paper, but I won't tell anyone if you don't.</sup></sub></sup></sub></sup></sub></sup></sub></sup></sub></sup></sub></sup></sub></sup></sub><br/>
Why the small text? "Really, 160gsm is classified as paper, but I won't tell anyone if you don't"
Because its the cardboard contest, as its classified as paper it probably shouldn't be entered, but this is an exception. Oscar
<sub><sup><sub><sup><sub><sup><sub><sup><sub><sup><sub><sup>Why not?</sup></sub></sup></sub></sup></sub></sup></sub></sup></sub></sup></sub><br/>
how did you type so small?
If you type:<br/><br/><pre>Normal ,,Subscript,, ^superscript^ ,,^combined^,, ,,^,,^more^,,^,, ,,^,,^,,^and even more^,,^,,^,,</pre><br/>It becomes:<br/><br/>Normal <sub>Subscript</sub> <sup>superscript</sup> <sub><sup>combined</sup></sub> <sub><sup><sub><sup>more</sup></sub></sup></sub> <sub><sup><sub><sup><sub><sup>and even more</sup></sub></sup></sub></sup></sub><br/><br/>See?<br/>

Copy pasta is your friend.
mmmm.. pasta.
Yes, copy pasta is quite delicious.

Print one out with your corporate logo, then if you're caught playing with one of these at work, tell them you're using your initiative and testing out a potential marketing tool... Surely the Mac has it's flavor of Notepad for simple text editing.
lol

Ha, now i can say this as the contest is over. "Really, 160gsm is classified as paper, but I won't tell anyone if you don't." as gmjhowe said, its not cardboard....intresting
I though it was a little thin... :) I got the message. -PKT
Fussy. Do you think it needs one?
Haha. I think it does. It would convince me to build it (although I probably will, anyway).
Instead of gluing together the "blocks" I duct taped them together, and then onto the Frisbee, and it still works fine.
