I'm glad you appreciated my instructables. ;-)

Did you make it ?

Just to clear things up? What are coroplasts? Sounds like chloroplasts, which make energy for plant cells.

LOL ...... :-)
It has nothing to do with the plant energy system.
In the USA it is better known as corroflute.
That's the material board used during the election day signs or for the REAL ESTATE SALE sign post.
Thank you! I didnt know that! Where do you buy coroplasts?

You can find it at a home depot center or in hardware store or at one dollar shop.
