Introduction: The Whale Dispenser

Picture of The Whale Dispenser

In the instructable I will show you how to make a Whale Dispenser out of a tape dispenser. One day I was holding a tape dispenser (I really don't know why) and noticed it looked like a whale, then I thought I would add some stuff so it would. Soooo, I will show you how to make one to give to your Geeky office buddies, or just to make for yourself.  Note: This is my idea

You'll need:

-A tape dispenser
-A hot glue gun
-A ruler
-A few minutes

Step 1: Mouth and Eyes

Picture of Mouth and Eyes

First, cut out a mouth, the measurements should be about 6 in. x 1/8 in.. Then cut out two egg shaped eyes theses should be a little less then a half of an inch wide.

Step 2: Drawing and Gluing

Now draw some teeth onto the mouth, I  made them about an 1/8 in. apart. Next draw on your eyes as seen in the picture.

Step 3: The Spout

To make the spout take the tape out of the dispenser and trace the plastic piece and cut it out. Then draw a cloud on it, it might be easier to look at the pictures. Then cut out the cloud and glue it onto the plastic thing

Step 4: The Finished Product

Here are some pictures of what it looks like when its finished. Enjoy!

Very creepycute. (Can you imagine an army of these things staring you down?)

i was very tired when i read the title of this "ible, and without looking at the picture first, immediately reached the conclusion that this was a device that dispenses whales. Hooray! Whales for all!

Cool beans!

It looks just as cute and still functions as a tape dispenser if you don't bother with the water spout!

So cute!  Now make it so I can still use it with tape in it!

It doesn't look like any functionality has been compromised; as you can see in picture 2 of step 4, the water spout can easily be folded back into place.  All that you would need to do is put the roll of tape onto that spool, and it is a normally functioning tape dispenser (that still looks like a whale)...

yeah it can fold back in

scoochmaroo (author)karossii2009-11-23

Yes, but I want it all! Spouting working tape dispenser.
But I suppose it is extra cute for it to only spout when it needs tape.
