Picture of Cardboard Frisbee
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

Picture of 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?
Kiteman (author)  me14231 year ago
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?

Spooky - I created this by myself.
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?
Kiteman (author)  zap80053 years ago
It certainly could - the word "Frisbee" is like the word "Hoover" (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!

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 cardboard contest in mind...
how do you vote for this in the Gorilla Glue Cardboard Contest ?
Kiteman (author)  gHjM3W5T20YCS4e305 years ago
Unfortunately, voting is over - they're just finishing off the judging now. Thanks for the thought, though.

why are they called rare-earth there in vast supply
Kiteman (author)  Doctor Freeman5 years ago
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)
Kiteman (author)  Doctor Freeman5 years ago
I don't know. The folding might be harder work to get straight, but it would last longer.

Try it, let us know.
ok i will

Im sorry Kiteman, you seem to have forgotten to add your video.

Otherwise, very good, I love its simple design.

Really, 160gsm is classified as paper, but I won't tell anyone if you don't.
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
Why not?
how did you type so small?
Kiteman (author)  knex_mepalm6 years ago
If you type:

Normal ,,Subscript,, ^superscript^ ,,^combined^,,  ,,^,,^more^,,^,, ,,^,,^,,^and even more^,,^,,^,,

It becomes:

Normal Subscript superscript combined more and even more

is this right?

Normal Subscript superscript combined more
