How to Make a House of Cards

Introduction: How to Make a House of Cards

Have you ever wondered, how the hell do I make a desent house of cards?.... Well then check this out! I tried to make it as simple as possible.

Step 1: Make the Base!

Make the strongest base, as you can. I have a few ideas but you can change and modify to make the perfect base. Please let me know what ideas you come up with!

Step 2: Make the 2nd Layer.

Its like making a cake, the more layers you put the better it looks. Its true here, the bigger you build it, the better it looks, but the bigger you build it the more likely it is to break. So don't get too carried away!

Step 3: Complete the House of Cards!

The final stage. Don't mess up now!

Step 4: Be Creative!

A house of cards doesn't just have to be a triangle experiment and be creative!

Step 5: Fun!

Please send me your pictures of ur card houses, thanks.

    thanks for your comments, they're helpful because this is my first instructable. I use the advice in future.

    Not bad for a first instructable. My suggestions would be:

    - Drop the txt msging. This isn't a rant against SMS language, I use it a lot when I'm constrained to 160 characters. There is no limit on text length in Instructables, so no need for these abbreviations when you clearly can spell well- they just make your text a pain to read.

    - The smaller pictures you include are a little too small- the GIMP, Paint.net and even Paint (shudder) would let you increase the size to make them easier on the eyes (and they're all free). Your photos are well lit and well shot, though, so please keep that up.

    This is cool! Everything was going so well until you said "gr8 tym," and then suddenly life turned bleak. Sigh.

    Some decent spelling and grammar would be nice. If you want more people to view your Instructable, adding an Intro picture would be ideal.

    As for the Instructable, I like it. I've always wondered how to make these.

    lol, i allways wanted to make one, but really couldent get past around 10 cards :-P. Oh yeah, you want to make sure your doing this in a 'low trific room', like your bedroom, and you want a strong, sturdy table that has PLENTY of room!
