Step 4: Top of the food chain

For this step you will have to decide where to start. Once you have found the starting point you will go along the lines ======== and decide which goes on top when they intersect like so.. ======||===

I prefer to try and make the line go under another line every other time or so. I also prefer that if there is a long sharp point made from changing direction that it goes on top of anything else.

What did you use to cut out the design on your binder?

I used a box cutter, but it might be easier with an x-acto knife.
Ok great! Thank's a lot! =)

cool; looks kinda' like old-school stuff ya' used to see on the subway.

Thanks, I came up with this while I was bored in a resource, I just drew lots of sharp corners and round bends and decide what goes over what, and what goes under. Unfortunately the pictures aren't all that great. (I blame today's youth)

Feel free to post suggestions on wording and any step that throws you off when you read it.
I was going to do a similar instructable, mines different any way and not really tribal just kind of similar

Link it here once you have created it.
Really cool!
I want one on the plastic cover of my notebook too.
Maybe you could use that for a stencil.
Awesome job.

By the way, what's a noggin?

I need to put some clear tape on both sides to almost laminate it and keep it from breaking off in my backpack. Packaging tape and not the half inch thick weakling tape.

Also the one on my notebook was the original design for my Xbox controller, It didn't work out as well as I was hoping so I just used it on my notebook.
A noggin's a head as is a noodle
