Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Materials

Here's what you need:

1. Cardboard
2. Ruler
3. Pencil
4. Scissors

Step 2: Making

Use the ruler and the pencil to draw a rectangle and cut it with the scissors. Then draw another rectangle (or a circle) like the picture below. If you like your new sign you can use it like this, but I'm not sure it will hang on every door. Cut a small piece to make the sign hook-shaped. Now it will perfectly fit on any door handle.

Step 3: Design

Write of draw something on the sign. If you can't draw well use Google to find an interesting picture, print it and glue it on the sign. Use your imagination and your sign will be perfect. Look what I did!

    The font that I used is Comic Sans MS. The robot, the hand and the name "instructables" are from the logo.

    Well, it's not the whole photo, I only printed the words and the pictures on a white paper. The background is an orange paper...
