Introduction: Magazine Nunchucks
i know there are a few instructables for newspaper nunchucks already
but i found that mine always broke so i came up with my own version.
p.s im 13 and this is my first-ible so be nice =P
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Gather Stuff
you will need:
duct tape (optional)
scissors (i used the pair on my knife)
Step 2: Removing Pages
if the magazines dont have the same number of pages you will have to take a
few of the middle pages from one of them.
Step 3: String
lay your two magazines down, open on the middle pages,
spaced about 6 1/2 cm (2 1/2 in) apart.
then place your string down under the spines of the magazines and around
into the folds of the pages, tape the string to the inside of the magazines as you
go to make it easier. then tie a knot in the middle of one of your magazines.
so it should look like the second picture.
Step 4: Rolling
ok first you close over the magazines with the string inside, then you
tape the string on the outside to the spine of the magazine.
fold over the spine a little bit to start rolling then roll the magazine up
really tight, you'll want a piece of tape set aside for this moment, when it's
rolled up nice and tight, tape the middle of the magazine, then the two ends
then the space between the middle and the end. then do the same with the other
Step 5: DUCT TAPE!
now to add duct tape, seriously it makes everything better,
but... this step is optional if you dont have duct tape.
cut a piece of duct tape the length of one of the nunchucks and roll
it on the nunchuck lenthways, it wont go all the way round so
you cut another piece and cover the gap, do this on the other
one as well and move on to the next step.
Step 6: Done!
woohoo! you're done!
so now you can defend yourself against annoying younger siblings
or in the office!
disclaimer: dont blame me if you somehow end up hitting yourself
in the face and falling down the stairs into a pit of molten lava.. or
something.. anyway.. just fight your friends with them AWAY from
fire, water, falling trees, stairs, priceless family heirlooms, or snakes.
so try making some cool nunchucks and go roll your own! lol =P
