Step 1: Materials
- (strong) cardboard
- (old) backpack straps
- a material that can serve as a cussion (we used the inside of a backpack)
- a small chisel
Step 2: Step 1 Drawing the Right Size
draw your design on the cardboard. the size of my design is 5cm x 9 cm but its handy to change the size so it fits nice on the back of your head.
Step 3: Step 2 : Snip Snip
use the scizzor to cut your design from the other cardboards, repeate step 1 and 2 once
Step 4: Step 3: Drawing Holes
draw the holes where your straps are going to be, make sure they are the right size! my straps where 2cm wide.
Step 5: Step 4: Cutting Holes
Use a knive or scizors to cut holes, you can use a small chisel to make the holes bigger without damaging the rest of the cardboard
Step 6: Step 5: the Cussion
do step 1 - 4 once but with the cussion instead of the cardboard
Step 7: Step 6 : Making the Cussion Stay in Its Place
use a stapler to staple the cussion to the cardboard,
Step 8: Step 7: the Fabric
cut out a piece of fabric, it must be 3 cm biger on all 4 sides than your cardboard, do this twice
Step 9: Step 8: Draw
draw your design on the fabric and sew the two pieces together, put the cardboard and cussion inside if you are halfway
Step 10: Step 9
cut holes on the fabric where the holes of the cardboard are underneed
Step 11: Step 10
add your straps and you are done!
