Step 1:

supplies:
-duct tape
-velcro
-glue
-and last a zippo

Step 2: Putting It Together

I did not use duct tape in the pics because I ran out of it on the first one I made

take your zippo and rap 1 layer of tape around it with the sticky side out (1st pic and 2nd pic). then with the sticky side out make a base with a little piece of tape (pic 3). then rap a piece of tape with the sticky side down around the body of the zippo (pic 4), then do the same to the base. if A want a strap to go over it you take a piece of tape about 6 inches long and cut it in half length wise. then put the 2 together with the sticky sides touching (pic 5). tape it on one side of the case (pic 6). and now you need your velcro and glue one piece on the case and the other on the strap (pic 7)

Step 3: Finished

    You vote when the competition is open for voting. The entries will have a "vote" button on them, and they'll be listed on the competition page. Velcro(R) is right. Duck Tape(R) is right if you used it, duct tape is more general for that type of tape (use either, who would know what you actually used?) L
