How to Add Instructables to Your X-Acto Knife -- Super Quick Mod!




About: I'm Mikey!

Well, yesterday my mom took me to the store Michael's to get some clay (Instructables Robot toy figure coming soon!), and I also got an X-Acto knife. I thought it was kind of plain, so here's my quick common sense mod for you X-Acto knife to have a little Instructables on it!

You can do this for people and give them away as gifts for Valientine's day if they like Instructables. Even if they don't do it for them. They'll come to the site and love it. :-)

P.S. This Instructable is common sense. Pointless. No reason. It's a mod. That's how I roll.

Step 1: Get Your Materials

For this Instructable, you need only 6 items.

  • Computer (to print out picture)
  • Printer
  • The picture you use your computer to print out.
  • Tape
  • X-Acto Knife
  • 1 Minute of your life.

Once you have these, move on.

Step 2: Taping

Get a piece of tape, a bit longer than the Instructables logo thing.

Try your best to not get your fingerprints on the tape, it will look weird.

Once you get that, flip over the Instructables logo thing, and press it down (image facedown) into the tape, and run over the paper with your finger to make sure it sticks.

Move on when you're done.

Step 3: Tape It On.

Pretty self explanatory.

Tape the logo onto your X-Acto knife. Try to keep it as straight as possible.

Once you finish that, you're done!

Thanks for viewing this easy Instructable, and I hope you have fun Instructabling with your X-Acto Knife!

    my dad gave me a blue box about 2 years ago he used to play with years ago with tons of kool stuff like a descrambler then he got me a new X-acto yesterday

    in the 90's they had pay channels, free channels and basic cable, the descrambler descrambles some of the channels so you can watch em for free

    wow! thats awesome. we have basic cable (channel 2 through 99) except for 14 which is HBO. but of course it still shows up on the TV guide channel so i get to see what awesome movies are playing on HBO and then have my hopes shattered by fuzz... its depressing.


    Reply 11 years ago on Introduction

    a cable box works for that too HBO used to be on channel 8 and pay per view on 52, cinemax on 48, and starz on 49, we used to watch free movies all the time then they moved all those up to the hundreds and wasnt sure what to do with my once illegal cable box, wanna buy it?

    wow... your mom let you have an x-acto knife?!?!?!

    Actually, parents letting childrens have weapons is not that rare.

    I have a Bokken, A Ninjato, A Bo staff, A genuine museum-bought Native-Australian Club, A Sledgehammer, A Fencing sword, A Police Baton, A Kunai, Sai's Dagger from Naruto, A Hacksaw ( Not a weapon, but still.... ), Three Boomerangs, A Pocket Swiss army Knife, A cutter, An Airsoft gun, A Katana, A home-made shinai, A slingshot, A short Metal Police club, A Keris Knife, and tons more

    You just have to let your parents know that having weapons doesn't mean that you'll smash TVs, Break Vases, and do other immature stuff like that ( In other words, 'mad with power' )

    I Managed to get my first weapon ( A Sledgehammer ) At the age of Eight and proved that I don't smash things senselessly with it, and I was allowed to collect even more, better weapons.

    That collection must have set you back. I don't have a use for a sledgehammer or most of the stuff you own, and if I needed it I'd borrow it from the house or from someone else. X-acto knives are pretty cool and I think this mod is actually very nice and well presented.


    Reply 11 years ago on Introduction

    Yes, this mod is a good idea. Simple yet creative. And the collection doesn't set me back whatsoever, and I even make some of the weapons I own ( The Baton, Ninjato sword ( ooohh.... sharp! ), Bokken, Sai's dagger ( uber-sharp! ) , Shinai, and my Hunting knife ( not included on the previous list ), and my short metal club ( kinda like a Japanese helmet breaker, Jutte ) and some other is made by me ). And even if it did set me back, I don't care :P


    Reply 11 years ago on Introduction

    Yes, but I think he is referring to a sharp tool ( Knives ) and not the x-acto only
