Picture of How-To: Make a Heart Out of a Cigarette Package

Here I want to show you how to create a heart out of the plastic film which seals a pack of cigarettes. A nice thing to do if you're hanging around bored in a pub.

Step 1: Pull the Plastic Off

Pull of the plastic foil about 1,5 cm

Step 2: Turn It 90 Degrees

Turn it around 90 Degrees, so 2 "flaps" are formed

Step 3: Melt and Fold Them Down

Now take a lighter. Melt the edges of the 2 Flaps and fold them down to the middle.

Step 4: Repeat

Repeat the last step 3 times.
Then pull of the plastic completely.

Melt down the pieces of plastic which are standing out of the square. First the two small sides, the the bigger ones.

Step 5: The Square

I thought it was pretty inventive-something I'd think of or do maybe-I dig it. I'm just glad over-bearing non-smokers are here to save the day by flaming on a guy's idea. Bravo! That's the way! Read an instructable clearly labeled in a manner indicating it uses a cigarette package (wait, could this involve cigarette CONSUMPTION? OH NO!) then crap on it because it does. I'll smoke until I die an untimely death just to spite self righteous people who insist on attempting to force people to conform to their own lifestyle.

It's like the word 'cigarette' is a vulgarity.

I think it is really sad that he is so worried about the toxins from the plastic being melted and not from the cigarettes
