You can now make your own ColaLife AidPods! All you need is two bits of A4 card, some scissors, some glue and a printer (or someone else’s!). Here’s what you need to do:

1 Download both parts of the pattern:

AidPod Net A4 Part1.pdf
AidPod Net A4 Part2.pdf

2 Print them out. NOTE: Make sure you have ‘Page scaling’ turned off in the print dialogue box.
3 Cut out the two pieces
4 Join the two pieces by gluing the tab
5 Score and then fold along the lines
6 Glue the tabs and assemble
7 Stand back and admire your handiwork
8 Get someone to give you a pat on the back
9 Start again at step one!

When you’ve made one, take a photo, upload it to Flickr and tag it ‘myaidpod’ and it should pop up here:
www.flickr.com/photos/tags/myaidpod. We will pull these into the blog once we’ve got one or two in place.

If you live in London or Rugby and were willing to dedicate your creations to the cause (we are going to need lots when our voting campaign starts) leave a comment or contact me (simon[at]colalife[dot]org) and I’ll let you know where to bring them.

Have fun!
