Step 1: Cutting the bottle

Picture of Cutting the bottle
Cut the bottle at the top removing the area where it starts to slope and the bottom and then down the the side so it opens up.

Step 2: Sanding and Taping

Take the sanding block to the edges so that it is not quite so sharp and then on the out side of the bottle so the tape sticks better.Then run tape from one side of the slit to the other, but not covering it until it is all taped and none of the bottle is showing from the outside

Step 3: Finishing up

a sheet of this that is fused together using heat would make pretty cool body armor

And do you expect to make a suit of this stuff? I bet it would be great. It would work so well every one there would not even attack you because they were laughing so hard.

Ha! Nice idea. That's assuming of course my beefy gorilla arms can be squeezed into a water bottle.
