I found a great site that provides a run-down of good hosting providers including free providers. The site is definitely worth checking out if you require a good host and don’t know who to turn to for that.

Office Stationery Darts

How to make some simple little darts out of household or office stationery

Office Stationery Dartsi


step 1 ~ Materials

Materials needed:
-Press tacks
-Paper clips
-Elastic bands
-3″ by 3″ sticky notes
-Card board



step 2 ~ Attaching the clips

Hold the clips around the tack with one hand, and wrap around the elastic band with the other to keep it in place. This is the hardest part, and if you struggle at first try attaching one at a time (although you will need more bands to do this).

Attaching the clips

step 3 ~ Making the flights

Fold the sticky note in half to make a rectangle, then unfold again. Then fold in half to make a triangle, then unfold again. Then fold into a triangle once more the other way. These are the base folds. Fold in half along the first base fold (into a rectangle). Next, take one of the the top corners (one that’s folded) and pull down into the middle, then repeat on the other side. Even out the sides. Its very simple to do, but it is hard to demonstrate in the form of text. Luckily, I can provide a picture.

I guess if you wanted to get funky you could use some of your personalized stationery your even your office letterhead to create that extra special dart and wow your co-workers.
