Step 1:

Cut a small rectangle of tape and glue it on the bottom beside the box pin. Next, stick another one just above the box pin and connect both using another tape to secure.

Step 2:

Remove the lead of the pencil using pliers. Get a piece of paper and place it on your work surface. Scratch the lead on the sandpaper to form it into dust. Next, add baking almost the same amount of baking soda and mix them.

Step 3:

Get your taped zipper. Pour a little bit of super glue and scatter it to the open part on the corner using a stick or pointy object. While it’s wet, dust a little bit of the powder, then add a drop of superglue again. Do the same on the backside, then spray the activator.
