I'm Building a Cardboard Ukulele

I'm in the process of building a playable cardboard ukulele. As in I just started a couple hours ago. I have the templates printed and cut out, but thats about it so far. I was wanting to do somthing besides the usual round sound hole and was wondering if anyone had any ideas. Right now I'm considering a star or Family Force 5's logo from the cover of Dance or Die. (I'm trying to make this as unique and ridiculous looking as I can.)

The templates:

Pics will be posted later once I get some more done. The instructions I'm using are on instructibles.com, and I think the guy who origianally built it had some videos of it.

I've gotten all the back and sides done. I've started on the neck, and I have started gluing the body pieces together. Hopefully all will go well.

HOW DID YOU KNOW? I could always draw a bacon pattern on this one. Or a bacon shaped soundhole.

Actually, the pattern of this gave me an idea. I have about ~1000 warped records in my possession...

Maybe scale it down a bit....

DO IT! You could scale it down to sopranino size, it's a size down from the templates I'm using.

I've done a little work on the neck... But not much more then that because I've been busy lately. I'll try and get some more work done soon!
