Step 1: What You Will Need:
1. A paper clip (the kind without a rubber coating)
2. Wire cutters
Step 2: Making the Drill
Bend the paper clip as shown so that you have a long part sticking out from the main body. Cut the top part of the long part off at an angle, forming a sharp edge. After this, you're done. Hold the paper clip down low on the long part and twist it back and forth to start drilling.
