All of us get them. One of those "your name here" false credit cards that try to convince you to buy a real one. Most people simply toss these in the trash. But you don't, right? That's wasting! That's filling up the landfills! No, both you and I know that there's plenty of potential in those pocket-able pieces of plastic. Here's one of their many uses.
A stencil! Who doesn't love a good stencil? Here's a neat, green (not in color, in the eco-friendly sense. Although I suppose it could be both), free stencil that can get the job done.
This is my submission to the Pocket-Sized contest! Although I'm sure there'll be plenty of great entries out there, I'd love a few votes for my first instructable!
**Don't use this to tag somebody else's property or vandalize anything. If you do and get caught, don't come crying to me.**
**There are sharp objects used in the creation of this stencil. Be a big kid and practice knife/pointy object safety**
Step 1: Materials and Tools
A relatively simple project, you will only need:
-A fake credit card (I suppose a real one could work. I haven't tried)
-A sharpie/marking tool of some sort
-An x-acto knife/knock-off x-acto/something similar
-An ordinary tack
that's all that's required, although I would recomend:
-A styrofoam block or something similar to work on top of
-A bag that the card will fit into (mine was part of packaging that would've been thrown away. Reuse!)
-Some tape, just in case of an accident
-A plan! I didn't have one, but I suppose you could if you'd like
if you chose to build the graffiti pen:
-a permanent marker
-a regular pen
