You will need the following stuff:
1 Rectangular cardboard box, according to the gift size. It will be the trap body. I used an "old" Iphone 2G box.
2 Small boxes. I used plastic ones for electric projects, but cardboard ones are useful, too. They will be the front and back parts.
1 black marker for the trap handle.
2 rectangular metal plates (for electric installations). You cand find them in hardware stores. For the trap sides.
1 Yellow electrical tape
1 Black electrical tape
2 Plastic rulers (or one long enough). I started using them for measuring, but they finished being part of the trap as the doors.
Screws and bolts
Grey tubes (from grey pens) and a knob. For decorating the side plates.TOOLS:
Dremel Rotary Tool
And don't forget:
I used black boxes and it saved me from buying black painting.
I love to drill and to use screws and bolts for assembling the parts. But you can make this project only using superglue.
1. If you don't have it, replace it!
2. Use protective equipment (dust mask and goggles)
3. Beware of drilled and soldered hot surfaces
4. Work in a good ventilated area.
5. Always have junk in stock
