Step 1: Supplies You'll Need
- 5 3.5" floppy disks (duh)
- 5/32 drill bit
- zip ties
- piece o wood (for drilling into)
- scissors (I couldn't find mine)
Step 2: Drill the Holes
For the bottom of our pen holder, the dimples are not quite where we need them so drill a hole above them at the corner.
Step 3: Piece it Together
Now it's time to use your zip ties! Feed the ties through the what will be the inside of your pen holder and then loop them through the adjacent disk, linking them together on the inside. Continue looping your ties until you have formed a square.
Putting on the bottom of your pen holder is much easier if you tighten all the ties on the sides and snip off the ends.
Step 4: Put on the Bottom
Step 5: Finish Up
This pen holder has a much greater capacity than your standard store bought pen holder. It also has a much more stable base and is guaranteed not to tip over and scatter its contents all over your desk. So don't be nervous about putting your heaviest scissors in.
Well, I hoped you liked my first instructable! I enjoyed doing it.
