    oooo....nice the text is much better than the pictures but i get the main idea...i usually do this without the binder clips, but rather cut notches out of a plastic/wooden ruler and the push that with my thumb and off it goes...

    This is nice. However, It will not be added into the contest. This is a weapon. Sorry. Nice job, though.
