How to Perforate paper

Would like to know how to perforate paper. I was thinking of a punch kind of machine that would perforate 5 - 10 sheets at a go and not a roller to perforate the sheets individually.

Paper Mache

Hey i want to make a mask with my son of paper mache. Now i read somewhere that some wallpaper glues are bad because they cause rashes on the face. I bought one from Bison (becasue it was the only one they had) but how can i find out if this is a good one or not without giving my 4 year old a itching face?

why am I not in the contest?

I don't understand why my instructable, the sphere lamp, isn't in the coffeecup contest anymore. Is it because of the use of plastic cups? Because as I mentioned it was intended with paper cups but I didn't had those available. If so, why didn't I got the message about disqualification at first and are there other instructables in the contest which only have plans about using paper cups but no cup was used? Will it help if I rebuild it with paper cups?

Help to find folding paper box

Hi I found a video on how to make a paperbox (possible origami, not sure) but I can't seem to find it again It was a box with sections and you could fold the box like a "magic box" and inside you could put truffles or whatever (hidden until you flipped the sides of the box) Does anyone now where I saw this or how to make it?, I don't remember what keyword I used and am desperate to find it Thanks //Jessica

Anyone remember those "Rainbow Video Disks"? The bits of A4 paper that could store up to 450 GB of data? What ever happened to those? Are they available somewhere or did they just die? If anyone knows of some way of storing files on paper (via 2d barcode or something) I'd be greatful.

paper log maker

Y'know those paper logmakers where you soak some newspaper and then put it in a metal box and pull the handles to compress it? I have tried to do this with PVC pipe and a wooden plunger made to fit, (with a wooden base as well). didn't work. anyone know if those logmakers work and how to do a cheap/simple version of one, perhaps building on my PVC pipe efforts? when I burned the resulting log from my PVC logmaker it was extremely sooty and burned in about 2 minutes, they are supposed to last an hour and burn clean enough to use in a woodburner.

Video, please!

There are lots of Instructables about making paper planes.  This is a Good Thing. Like any other group of Instructables, they vary in quality from the appalling to the brilliant, but they almost all share the same Bad Thing. For projects where the behaviour of the finished item is all-important, they do not have a video to demonstrate the different throwing styles required and the expected flight characteristics. Please, paper engineers, can we have video of the flights?

need to design something that will cut paper squares 4 inch by 4 inch

I am using cardboard, heavy paper stocks and photo albums and trying to design/create something that will cut individually a 4 inch by 4 inch square into the centers of all these different stocks of paper/cardboard. I thought about using a dremel but it would take entirely too long. I even thought about a die cutter but cannot find one for a square in the size of 4 inch by 4 inch. They do have machines (crafting) however you have to pass the material underneath the machine and the crafting machines are not wide enough to pass through a 8.5 wide paper. Any ideas would be helpful thank you. Even the photo albums arenot really that thick less than a quarter inch thick however it is still 8.5 inches wide. Need to design or make a press, a handheld punch or something that will be easiest to cut a 4 x 4 square out of the center of the material. I have seen up to a 2 inch punch and from reviewers even the 2 inch craft punch does not work that well for 27.00 and I need at minimum 3 inch by 3 inch but prefer 4 inch by 4 inch square. thanks

Reduced Instructable Pages!

We need to be able as a community reduce the amount of pages each project uses. This kind of goes against the stub philosophy, but imagine if you could reduce an Instructable to a single page or even multiple projects per page. If not 1, why not 2, or 3? I see some projects that are overwhelming with information at times. This could also add even more features such as un-selecting the steps that you don't need and poof, gone! There is also the potential for yet more ad views (which means everyone wins) with this service | 1. ads on the service page, 2. ads on the finished page. I've been considering this for years in all documentation that I do, how to reduce pages. However, this will be impossible without the staff at Instructables support and willing to adapt and grow. I also know paper is not the issue it used to be, but that isn't exactly the point I'm trying to reach; for instance sometimes more is really too more. Also, I know I'm new but focusing on that goes against my belief in working agile. Hi everyone!
