Step 1:

First, you'll need an empty Icebreaker package. Get 2 pieces of paper, fold one in half 2 times on the long side. Then, trace the big lid at the top of the paper. Cut that out. You should be able to do this three times on one piece of paper. You will want to cut the semi-circle a little smaller than the lid so that it fits. Repeat step with other piece of paper.

Step 2:

Now that you have both pieces of paper cut out, staple them together.

Next, put 2 pieces of duck tape on both sides of the paper. THEY SHOULD NOT STICK TOGETHER. Both pieces should be of equal length, or of approximately equal length.

Now you need to stick both pieces of tape to the inside of the container. This can be tricky. Make sure that the paper is all the way in the container.

Now you need to sharpen a pencil... a lot. By a lot, I mean to 2 and 3 quarters of an inch. This is so that it will fit in your container. If you have a little extra semi-circle of paper, you may want to put that in the container too.

Decoration time! Duck-tape the semicircle, but don't stick it over the package. You wouldn't be able to draw then! You should duck tape over the small lid, unless you think you will need it. I didn't. Now, you can decorate the cover with sharpies! Or your other permanent markers, of course.

DRAW! Or, take notes. Your pick. But, I would DRAW!
