Use the box cutter to start the hole, then take the scissors to cut the rest, again using the scissors make sure you just have the circle, then take the lighter and melt it a little bit so the edges are not sharp.

If it is cut into thirds how can one piece be the second biggest piece? Thirds would be three equal pieces. If you said cut into three pieces of unequal length it would be a more accurate description. Just sayin......

Thanks for the input though brother

You have to realize, this was done almost 4 years ago. I'm 15 now, that means I was around 11 when I made this Instructable.
