Thumb wrestling. A fun thing to do... and now even FUNNER!!!
This instructable is going to show you how to make a thumb wrestling rink, Now lets get ready to RUMBLE!!!! (ding! ding!). Lol
This is an entrant in the Gorilla glue cardboard contest. Please rate and comment
Step 1: Step 2 What you need
What you will need:
Scissors (or craft knife)
Cardboard (of course)
and a hot glue gun
Lets Get Started......
Step 2: Step 1: Making The base
firstly measure out a square on your sheet of cardboard (10x10 works well) and cut it out with scissors or a craft knife. (Being careful not to cut yourself at the same time of course!)
Step 3: Step 2: Marking and Cutting holes for the corner posts.
first mark a dot in each corner with the marker about 5mm from the corner and "dig out" with a craft knife.
Step 4: Step 3: Cutting the corner posts.
Now, on a skewer, place mark 4cm from the blunt end and cut at the 4cm mark. Also theres four corners so your going to have to do this FOUR TIMES! (my brother cut 6 out so i thought this may be necessary)
Step 5: Step 4: Gluing the posts in place.
Now for the posts. Place the posts in the holes you made so there is about 2mm sticking out the bottom of the card. Dab a big spot of glue around each of the posts on the top and a dab of glue over the piece of the post sticking out the bottom. leave to dry for 3-5 minutes.
Step 6: Step 5: Thumb holes.
Now pick two opposing corners and mark two circles with about a 2cm radius (you pick how close together you make the holes). then you must cut out the circles with a craft knife(it might be hard to use scissors!)
Step 7: Step 6: Cutting the ropes
Now you must measure and cut two lengths of string about 45cm's long. This will be hard if you only have a 30cm ruler like me.
