Making a shirt of of a dollar bill is a nice trick, but it's absolutely nothing compared to what Won Park can do with money. Check out his gallery for some insanely cool folding. Even better, he's made PDFs and videos to help you make the same stuff. GalleryFish InstructionsVideo tutorialvia Drawn!

So, I am 15 and I live in Colorado. Recently something has caught my eye that I want to buy. Problem is that is costs $550. Does anyone have any ways to get money at my age? I have submitted some job applications already but there is really only two places that I can walk to. I went around and de-iced some gutters and got about $60 from that, but that is a one time thing. Anyone got any more ideas?

Dont get me wrong here but the new ads in the middle of the instructables are really annoying. I will get use to them and I am glad instructables is getting some money. One thing I have found is that in general rss feeds dont have ads so I think I might start reading instructables in thunderbird or google reader. Another idea is that maybe there could be an ad free version of instructables for $10 bucks a year or something like that. I imagine that you could get a lot more money like that then with ads. Also I was wondering, does instructables get money every time I click on an ad or every time I buy something after clicking on the ad. Thanks Joe

I was excited to pull together a video for the Jack Daniel's challenge, but then I noticed the small text at the end of the contest description: "...Void in CA and where prohibited." Why the heck are residents of California exempt from participating in this contest?

Aight, so im back. for a short period of time, that is. I've realized that over the past few months i haven't touched my knex. Its become a childish past obsession to me. So, yeah, i've decided to sell the knex. Its 30 pounds of good pieces. Not the crappy pieces that no one uses. All the good stuff. Im talkin 250+ yellow 5ways. 1000+ green rods. Every piece imaginable. This was enough to make the Knexsayer, the tr18, and some oodaammo pistol at the same time. I've had a good time here, but , time to move on. So, how much for it? i was hoping to get above 150. i'll probably put it on ebay....

Twas bound to happen - so why not open the new year with a new high?http://money.cnn.com/2008/01/02/markets/oil/index.htm?postversion=2008010212U.S. crude for February delivery jumped $4.02 to $100 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange before slipping to $99.42. The previous trading record was $99.29 set Nov. 20. Oil prices ended 2007 by gaining nearly 60 percent for the year, the largest jump this decade."This market is really gonna fly," Ira Eckstein, president of Area International Trading Corp, said from the NYMEX floor.In Nigeria, bands of armed men invaded Port Harcourt, the center the oil industry Tuesday, attacking two police stations and raiding the lobby of a major hotel, The Associated Press reported. Four policemen, three civilians and six attackers were killed. The Niger Delta Vigilante Movement claimed responsibility for the attack.At 2.1 million barrels per day, Nigeria was the world's eighth-largest oil exporter in 2006, according to the U.S. Energy Information Agency.Furthermore, the auto manufacturers are saying the new CAFE standards (35mpg for cars) are a very expensive goals. Mind you, there's cars 20+ years ago that exceeded this standard (CRX got in the mid 50mpg range).Futurama did elude to $100 per gallon of gas in New York city by 2012... How could they be wrong? :D

Hey, I have a bit of time on my hands and I plan on spending some of that casually making money. I've figured that making and selling crafts would be the best way to go about that, all while incorporating something I enjoy: crafts. Do you have any ideas of easy-to-make items which I can sell on eBay? So far, I'm considering candles and candle holders. Thanks!

Anybody here play the stock market? Tell us about your strategies, companies you think are about to do really good or really bad, your opinion on shorting stocks, anything stock related! I havent invested any real money yet but i play facebook fantasy stock exchange and I invested all my 10 million dollars which they give you into Ford Motor company when the prices were 1.92 per stock. The stocks are now 3.36 and im waiting for this bailout to get approved... but so far if i sold all of my stock i would make a 6million dollar profit which is pretty good for a first timer i guess.

At least once a month, we do an internal brainstorming session where we think up new things for Instructables. The focus of today's session is "alternative revenue strategies." Currently, Instructables is supported by a mix of brand and contextual advertising. If the economy goes into a state where fewer people are willing to spend money advertising on Instructables, how should we pay the bills? Would you pay for a "pro-account" that had reduced advertising, or other features? What features are worth how much? How about if you could leave a tip when someone answered a question really well? Are you interested in kits or deals on supplies for projects? If so, where do you currently go looking for kits or supplies? Also, in case you're worried, we're in good shape right now, and already have a plan B (and even a plan C!). Here, I'm hoping to tap into the community for some new ideas, and hopefully come up with some new things we haven't thought of before.

Eventually everybody (old money, and politicians excluded) has to get a job. Bills have to be paid. Mouths have to be fed. A few lucky folks work for extra spending money. So iblers, what have you done to earn a buck/pound/yen/kina/baht/rupel/rupee/peso? Go all the way back to childhood. Don't leave the crummy jobs out!

Surely there is some information on how instructables pays all its contributors/writers/photographers/videographers for making the site what it is? How to find the reference on how they could even pay a pittance to users thru paypal? Maybe there is a section in the FAQ that helps us contributers make money else where. I can't find it. don't call me shirley

Are they stupid, lazy or both? I ask this because I've seen repeated references, both online and in traditional media, saying that Hormel is experiencing a boost in sales as "money conscious" consumers buy more Spam. Now I am a Spam aficionado, and I can tell you that I have never seen it for sale for less than $2.39 a can, that works out to $3.18 a pound, for a food that is 25% saturated fat. So what other meats can I buy for less than $3.18 a pound? I looked at the circular for Publix, not the cheapest grocer by far, and whole chickens are $.79 a Lb, Bottom Round Roast $2.19 a Lb, Pork Cutlets $2.99 a Lb. And I bought ground beef for $2.52 a Lb. So, really, what kind of moron is being "money conscious" by buying the MORE expensive food? Are we really that BAD at basic math, the mortgage crisis would suggest so. Now I fully expect some apologist to say "It's convenient, people don't have time to cook", but according to Nielsen's we have time to each watch on average 4 hours of TV a day. And really don't you still have to prepare spam, or are people just plopping it on a plate, garnishing with parsley and serving?

I have recently been searching for a cheap bike lock or a way to make one. Yesterday I went to a garage sale with my friend, what we found there where combination locks for $1 dollar each. I quickly bought one, and then the lady asked what I needed it for. I told her now I just needed to buy some chain and I wouldnt have to sped a lot of money on a bike lock. She out of nowhere handed me the chain and let me have it for $1. Well anyway thats how I acquired it but does anybody know if theese locks can be picked or if the chain can be broken. The chain is in moderatly good condition and is as thick as the stuff used for swings. I dont have a pictrue because my camera needs batteries

How much is Knex going for? I have a 33 lb. lot and was woundering how much you guys would pay for it. I have lost all interest in Knexing, and am now into the real thing. I made the 6 foot and it sucked, but it did fire about 40 yards (you guys way over estimate range, there's no way you could get 200 yards out of a knex gun, I built the sr-v2 and it went 25 yards.)

So, as much as I've enjoyed being a full time student for the last year, the time comes when a man discovers he needs money, that time is when his wife says "Get a Job"! So I'm starting to look for an Mech Eng internship and the internship office at UCF is proving less fruitful than I had anticipated. Of 18 engineering internships listed (and that list has only grown by two in the last 45 days), only 5 are "local" and of that 5, I meet the qualifications of 3. Those 3 being USA/NASA 68 miles away Lockheed 43 miles away and Disney 47 miles away Not that I'm asking for the world to meet my convenience, but the idea of working an internship 12-20 hours a week while commuting 9-12 hours a week, plus carrying a full time class load, thrills me not. So the question becomes, quite simply. How Do I Find An Internship? Post my resume to Monster? Spam my resume to every engineering firm in a 30 mile radius? Help, any reasonable suggestions would be much appreciated. I added that pic because I need your bright ideas.

By this i don't mean a horrible ebay store, just a separate site. One where us geeks, art and green freaks can auction off or sell the stuff we make or own. Ya know like ebay used to be....ahh good times...good times. But seriously, would you? Because i have a domain i paid 3yrs in advance only to find out that they don't allow...adult themes....some jerk waits until a few of us run a site for a couple of weeks, then decide to update the new TOS(POS really) but auctions and stores are completely ok. so come in and let me know, should i start something like this or not? I have a template started so far. just need the green light to go. :)

How instructables staff could make more money to run the siet is to make an option for members to turn the adverts on or off. if this option was here then i would turn them on inso instructables will last longer and get better sooner.
