How To Make Your Own Mic Flag

Ever since you were a little kid, you dreamed of having your very own mic flag… Well, guess what!? The wait is over!

Here are step-by-step instructions on how to do it yourself.

What You Need:
Cardboard
Pencil
Tea Light (or similar sized circular object)
Pink Exacto Knife
Ruler
Duct Tape
Black Permanent Marker
Logo Stickers (or your logo with some clear packing tape)
Wine (optional)

(This list would make MacGyver proud, no?)

STEP 1: Gather your shit together and take a deep breath.

STEP 2: Measure out 13″-ish wide x 3″ tall and cut yourself out a piece of cardboard.

STEP 3: Fold the cardboard into 3″ square and use the rest as a fold. Duct tape the fold on the inside. Now you have a square. Weeeeeeh!

STEP 4: When you are done admiring your cardboard square, cutout two 3″ x 3″ squares from your cardboard and mark them with X to find the center. These will be the top and bottom of the mic flag. If you don’t want the bottom then just cut out one for the top.

STEP 5: Find a circular object, like a tea light to mark a circle in the center of the ‘X’

STEP 6: Cut the circle out. Try not to butcher the cardboard like I did.

STEP 7: Attach the top with some duct tape and then wrap the whole thing up in duct tape. There is no such thing as too much.

STEP 8: When you run out of duct tape. Stop. Then, cut the hole back out at the top (and bottom if you made one)

STEP 9: Put your logo stickers on each side of the mic flag.. like so.

STEP 10: If you’re super clever, this step can be avoided by just buying black duct tape. 😉 But if you’re like me, open a window and colour the silver tape black with a marker.

STEP 11: Insert mic and, VOILÀ! You got yourself you’re very own mic flag!!

  9. I was curious if you ever thought of changing
    the structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one
    or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
