This may have turned out to be a good looking impersonation of what Cardboard Safari does with their laser cutters, but my hands HURT after this project. The moral of the story is to cough up the $28 for the trophy from them or you'll be coughing up at least that for a hand brace. Your choice.
A few tips if you're going to attempt it:
- Sharp, sharp, sharp tools!
- Glue it together on the seems with a white glue that dries clear, but try to keep it hidden as the glue could leave a shine on the dull cardboard surface.
- Hang these bad boys with push pins. They're usually so light that one or two do the trick and leave tiny holes for those who rent.
