Build a caddy to hold unpaid bills, checkbook and supplies from old floppy disks.
Every Sunday morning I have a ritual. I brew a cup of joe, gather up my checkbook and bills and go out onto the lanai to pay bills. I thought it would be convenient to build a caddy to hold all my bill paying supplies and unpaid bills. So I built this bill caddy from floppies I had laying around.
This is an easy Instructable that can be completed in a couple of hours.
Hot glue gun
Sheet of ABS
27 Floppy Disks
Discarded mint or candy container
Step 1: Build Panels
The first thing to do is create panels that will eventually become the bottom, middle, front and back panels of the caddy.
Prepare the work area by laying wax paper down on a flat workbench. Place the carpenter square on top of the wax paper.
The process is simple, start by placing a floppy disk in the corner of the carpenter square. Take another floppy and place a bead of hot glue on the edge and quickly butt it up to the floppy that's in the corner. Repeat until you complete a panel.
Make three panels of 2 X 3 and one panel of 1 X 3.
During the gluing process, make sure the floppies are all aligned in one direction.
