For this instructable I will show you how to create a tribal design using only:



-Belief In Shadows

-Your Noggin

Step 1: Starting.

To begin first decide on what your design will look like and where you will start. Some good starting place are: The middle (if you aren't going to make a semetrical design) the left side, and the right side. I started in the middle just to show some techniques I used.
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! =)
Very cool. Thanks for the help. :)
It always looks cool to mix Hard, Sharp corners with organic flowing lines.
very cool<br />
&nbsp;this is cool. thanks, it really helped. haha :)
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!<br/>I want one on the plastic cover of my notebook too.<br/>Maybe you could use that for a stencil.<br/>Awesome job.<br/><br/><sub>By the way, what's a noggin?</sub><br/>
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
