Introduction: Old Kneaded Eraser As Poster Putty

I could explain this tutorial in about a sentence, but where is the fun in that! Since this is my first post, I thought I'd go all out with pictures and stuff to familiarize myself with the process. If you don't want to waste your time, just read the title again.

As I was cleaning/organizing my desk, I found an old kneaded eraser. I figured I just throw it out because they start leaving smudges on your paper and they don't self clean like they're suppose to. Plus they are very inexpensive to replace.

I also gathered a few notes on my desk that I didn't know where to put.

So, put two and two together, you get a solution.

Step 1: Pull

Gather up your old kneaded erasers. Clean out any unwanted hairs, buggers, etc. Pull off a little clump of kneaded eraser, depending on size of object sticking to the wall. In my case, a post-it-note size piece of paper.

Step 2: Stick

Stick to back of poster edges, paper, notes...etc.

Step 3: Place

Place as if you were using normal poster putty.

Step 4: Go Nuts!

Stick whatever you want. I thought the batteries were a cool idea. The quarter may be a bit much, however, it could be a reminder to be frugal with your money! Live that minimalist lifestyle that you crave for!!

Step 5: In a Nutshell

Basically. Use your old kneaded eraser as poster putty. Thanks for your time!

My kneaded eraser dried onto my wall, almost impossible to get off without peeling the paint off. Sorry but I do not recommend this

It didn't, but in the comment I replied to suggested for the guy who's kneaded eraser got taken away to sue the teacher. In my example, my friend actually could have sued the teacher.

(normal people don't sue teachers for taking away a $1 kneaded eraser...)

im sure anyone would sue anyone for anything these days =P, and price honestly doesnt matter, if i payed hard earned money for something and a teacher or anyone really, stole it from me than im sure i could at least attempt to press charges. although the judge may throw me out of the court room becasue of the irrelevance of the case but still. she stole it, and that pissed me off, im sure i could have done something to get it back, or make her pay for it. =P

Will it leave smudges on your wall?

author

I checked and so far it's all clear.

That's good, I was just assumming...since it makes smudges on paper, why wouldn't it do the same to your wall. But I guess different materials change that.

author
Arbitror made it!(author)2008-12-16

With me, it only makes smudges if there is pencil on the paper... Or ink...
