This is a little M & M catupult that anyone can make. I use it to throw M & M's into mine and my friends mouths but you could use it to throw at a target, into a cup, at your little brother/sister, etc...

you cut the little edge that holds the flap down, you could also file it down

You can also reatach the lid to the base so you can hold M & M or Mints in it. Just put a piece of tape or something over the not to share hole and remove it when you need to get at the contents. This was a very creative way to use an object that has so many capabilities!

If you have it lying around epoxy or latex put in it and the bottome left on will make it sturdy and have more weight. Also you can launch the mints that come inside. Mine worked fairly well with the mints.
Haha, looks cool, I will have to try this when I buy those mints. (favorited)
