Introduction: Floating UFO (Kludge77's Tardis Remix)

When I saw Kludge77's tardis, as a The X-Files fan, I thought: I could do this with an UFO!

So, I did a quick model in cardboard.

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

• Cardboard (I used a cereal box and some thicker cardboard taken from a supermarket box)
• 2 magnets
• 10 cm of transparent thread
• glue, staples, tape
• scissor, cutter

Step 2: C

Cut, fold and glue (or use staples, tape) the cereal box to do a square based parallelepiped.

Then fold it in a C shape.

Step 3: 1st Magnet

Tape or glue to the 1st magnet in the upper arm of the C.

Step 4: UFO

Draw 2 circles on the thicker cardboard. Make a little hole in the bottom and insert the thread, block it with tape and/or knots.

Step 5: 2nd Magnet

Put the 2nd magnet on the 1st circle. Pay attention that the polarity of the magnets will be right so they will actract and not repulse.

Glue and staple the 2nd circle and decorate the UFO.

I wanted to do the UFO with FIMO, but uncluckly today I didn't have much time.... It came out something like a flying apple pie....

Step 6: Anchor

Anchor the UFO inserting the thread in a hole at the base of the C. Close the holes in the C.

Step 7: Finish!

Here's the flying sauce!

This is a one of a kind instructible. I've never seen anything like it. Good job

No.... she plays with few things (a piece of twine, a stick with
