Team Instructions

When is a door not a door? When it's ajar. In this challenge, your task is to span the distance that a door normally fills. You must devise a method to make the materials you've been given reach from one side of a door jamb to the other. You may not alter the scissors, or use them as part of the final solution. You have five minutes to complete this task, but you'll receive 10 bonus points if you complete it in under four minutes. You'll also receive up to ten points each for creativity, cooperation and communication.

Have fun!

I just found your blog, has been a great read! Just thought it may interest you to know, a while back i managed to find a british labels company who printed me some mailing labels for a really low price. If interested then it may be worth taking a look at their website.
