I am going to show you how to make your very own pair of Slide Skates. Slide Skating is a new sport that I thought of. It allows the user to do really cool looking tricks like grinds, without having a lot of experience in extreme sports.

Step 1: Gather the Materials
This project does not require any hard to find items. All you need is a plastic folder (must be very smooth), a pair of scissors, a sharpie, a pair of flat soled shoes (like skating shoes), and some duct tape.
Step 2: Prepare the folder.
Take one of your shoes and place it in the middle of the folder. Using the sharpie, trace the shoe onto one side of the folder. Flip the folder over and take the other shoe and trace that as well.
Step 3: Trace the trace
Trace a second shape around the previous trace. measure out about 1/4 to 1/2 inch and follow the shape all the way around. Turn the folder over and repeat with the other trace.
Step 4: Cutting the traces.
Cut out the 2 shapes that you drew on the folder. Be careful and try not to leave any rough edges on the shapes. Make sure to round out every edge.
