Pile these things together into "bricks" and cellotape them. Once you have your bricks, pile them into two even piles (make sure your bricks are the same size...it helps). Cellotape them all together and then gladwrap it a few times.
This is what it looks like afterwards.
The bottom of the "stack" is the CD board with carpet over the top and stapled in using the staple gun.
I then had to make sure that the stack was in the middle of the board. Turned it upside down and then nailed it. The stack of cards is a lot harder to nail in than normal wood, which was really surprising. I think it is because there is a bit of a cushion and my hammer hits were just being absorbed.
Once on, I stapled the top of it onto the stack.
The last thing I did was put a coat hanger inbetween the two stack of cards and then tied the bungy cord on the end of the hanger.
Day 1 Ruby only used the "toys" but I taught her to use it for scratching and she did so all by herself on Day 2!
