Picture of Make a Desktop Scorpion (using a dead mouse and clips)
So you broke the mouse of your office's computer. SHAME ON YOU! Don't you know you must care for the company's assets?

What? Will you throw the mouse to the garbage can? DOUBLE SHAME! The mouse will polute the environment!!!

Well, no problem! I will show you a way to transform that dead mouse into an useful and decorative accesory for your desktop. You will need some paperclips and other stuff for transforming that mouse into a scorpion with magnet for keeping the clips and pincers for the notes.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
You will need:
  • 1 dead mouse
  • 10 paper clips (In Colombia, we call this kind of clips "Butterfly Clips")
  • 3 screws
  • 3 nuts
  • 3 packing rings (the metallic ones)
  • 3 pincers (like the kind you use in electronics)
  • 1 magnet
Dremel Rotary Tool
Wire cutters

And don't forget:

1. If you don't have it, replace it!
2. Use protective equipment (dust mask and goggles)
3. Beware of drilled and soldered hot surfaces
4. Work in a good ventilated area.
5. Always have junk in stock
6. Enjoy!
