Introduction: Cardbord Backpack
pack that can carry stuff, and is made mostly of cardboard. this is my first project instruction and i;m going to make it sweet and simple
Step 1: Materials
tape (i'm using electrical but you can use others)
Step 2: Make the Straps
cut 2 cardboard straps 4 inches wide and 18 inches long.
Step 3: Cut the Body and Fold the Tabs
cut out 2 squares 13" by 13"
then fold a 3 inch tab from the top of both squares to create a box
Step 4: Glue
hot glue one of the pieces to the other. glue it from the body of one to the tab of the other one.
may need to re-enforce with tape or more glue.
DO NOT do it on both sides only one
Step 5: Tape
tape both of the sides together LOOSELY not tightly. to create a closed box
Step 6: Holes
put a hole in the the bottom of both straps and 2 holes in the bottom of the pack.
Step 7: Rope
put rope threw both of the holes in the pack
Step 8: Tape the Straps
tape the straps to the top of the pack
Step 9: Rope (again)
put the rope threw the straps to connect both ends. you are complete
put a knot in the rope so the rope stays connected.

That's an interesting way to make one. :) You could pad the straps to make it not cut into your shoulders too.
