Cardboard Chick Feeder

    I was planning on getting some new chicks and needed a feeder for them. I wanted to make my own for cheap but didn't really go to deep in thought of it [​IMG]. I noticed a cardboard box in the floor (throwing it away would just kill me knowing I could use it for something) and decided to make a feeder out of it.

    All I used was an old box, scissors, knife, ruler, pencil, hot glue gun, graph paper, and tacks.

    I drew out my design on the paper, and then pinned it to the cardboard.

    I unpinned the paper and connected the dots to make the shapes of the feeder.

    Cut them out with a knife...

    ...and glued them all together! Nice cheap feeder, now all I need are the chicks. [​IMG]
