Wear the G.I.B. on your head whenever you go Grouponing (def: "the act of redeeming a Groupon"). By tradition, if you spot another Grouponer, the two of you must: stop what you're doing; touch beacons; make uninterrupted eye contact for 3 minutes; silently exchange social security numbers; and finally, discuss sports. What happens after that is up to you.
Unfortunately, ordering your G.I.B. online can take forever, and stores everywhere are out of stock. This instructable will show you how you can make your own standard issue G.I.B. unit, using common household items.
Remember, there is a different Groupon Interlocator Beacon for every personality! Don't allow these instructions to constrain your creativity. When it comes to G.I.B.s, your imagination is the limit. What's on your G.I.B.? Sparkly sequin? A paper mache volcano? Wire-mounted hard boiled eggs? Barbie legs? Let's get started and find out.
Step 1: Gather Materials for Your Beacon
You will also need: tape or glue; scissors; some cardboard; a few pipe cleaners; and a head band or elastic band large enough to fit around your head. A shirt sleeve or old underwear elastic works wonderfully.
Other optional supplies include markers: stickers; a Bedazzler; aluminum foil; and any thing else for adding ornamentation to your Beacon.
Step 2: Prepare Your Charm
At this point, feel free to color, bedazzle, apply stickers, or wrap your charm in aluminum foil.
Step 3: Attach Charm to Pipecleaner
Tape/glue the end of the pipe cleaners to the back of your charm, so the end of the pipe cleaners are attached to the bottom of the design. Alternatively, punch a hole in your charm, and simply insert the pipe cleaners through the hole.
Step 4: Attach Pipecleaner to Headband
Insert the pipe cleaner into the read of the headband, and allow it to dangle over head. The charm should be suspended above your forehead.
The Home Boy
Poke a small hole in the headband above the ear. Insert the pipe cleaners in the hole.
