Now dismantle the pen and mark 1 inch on its body as shown in picture 1. After that cut out the marked area and with the help of the cutter cut off a strip making a space .As shown in the picture number 3.

Now when you are done cutting the body of the pen glue that piece to the headgear which is already glued on to the hexbug spider.

Warning :- don't glue the piece where you had made the cut in between of the pen body . glue the area where there is no cut like shown in picture number 4.

Step 7: THE CLIPPER ATTACHMENT
