Welcome to my first Instructable!!!! I'm entering it into the Dead Computer Contest, so please vote for me!! :)
My goal for this project was to use as much found or discarded items in the build as I could, almost all the parts were salvaged from the dumpster at my work.
No animals were harmed in making this project, but some were very annoyed.
I'm not an expert on anything electronic but from what I am told the inside of the monitor may be dangerous. The tube has harmful vapors, and the electronics can still hold a charge for months after it is unplugged. Open the monitor at your own risk, and I am in no way responsible for any harm that may befall you. With that being said I hope you like my instructable. Constructive criticism and other ideas are welcome!!
So here is a basic list of tools and supplies that I used in this project.
Hot glue gun
Cardboard or some sturdy substrate (I used corrugated plastic and some double ply poster board)
Paint (spray and liquid)
Spray adhesive or glue stick
Metal rod or stick of some kind for puppets (I have no children so I don't know a child safe alternative, suggestions welcome!!!)
Other useful items:
Photo editing software
Computer paper for printing out puppets
