Step 2: Home Now to Build!

Build Build Build!!!

So I got home alive and only slightly came off the ground : P turning corners was the hardest part nearly hitting the edge on the ground. I now understand that it was silly and that I could have been pulled over try explaining the situation to the police officer.

"Very sorry officer I have this cardboard on my bike to make a face book outfit...." 

OK back to business, I laid the cardboard down with the white side face down and using a small saw I cut the pieces of wood to the correct size. One problem I encountered was that the back of the cardboard was slightly well hairy? I don't know the best way to describe it but I knew that sticking would be difficult.

But I went ahead and done that anyway as I was running out of time it was already dark and I needed to be out soon!
I stuck the wood around the sides using no more nails that I had lying around. Notice that their is some hinges well I had an Idea that seeing as this was cut in half I could add a small flap to make this easier to get in a cab home when I am completely out of it and have probably lost the thing anyway. That didn't work because the hairy cardboard would not adhere properly!.

Excellent. That looks way cool. I couldn't picture it at first when I heard of it, but you nailed it. Love the way you have your head poking through the profile pic. Really imaginative and original. <br><br>Great stuff!!!
Great job. I really enjoyed your write up as well.
Thank you very much!!<br>
Awesome costume. Liquid nails or a staple gun may have worked better for you than nails.
Yes! I need to invest in a heavy duty staple gun, Thank you!
I love it love it love it!
Tar very much!<br>
This as absolutely awesome! What a great idea! I would love to open the door to a salesman wearing this...<br><br>Good job!
Thank you!! Yeah well he wouldn't have to ask your name : )
kinda reminds me of &quot;how i met your mother&quot; when the episode starts with ted saying how life had changed with smathphones as he us walkin to the pud u see internet pages overlay next to the person as he walks the street..<br><br>hilariouse anyway , nice costume
Oh I haven't seen that episode but I get what your saying from the picture you posted! Very cool!
sorry for the grammar, and thats what i was talking about :D still, kudos
Brilliant! Congrats for being featured!
Amazing right? Thanks very much!
I like it!
Thank You!
That is a very clever idea.......could have been done on just cardboard from an appliance or refrigerator box gotten from an appliance store too. Much lighter and cheaper than buying the board you bought. <br> <br>Love it when people come up with great ideas like yours. I hope you won a prize for the most clever.
Thank you for your nice comment! Good idea using recyclable materials! I am sure that there would have been some old refrigerator boxes or something around!<br><br>Next time I hope I won't be rushing so I can think about it properly. : )
Now you just need to upgrade to &quot;Timeline&quot;...lol Just saying... :)
Good point it might not be recognized any more, Facebook 2.0 here I come!
