Introduction: Anoying Paper Thing, Another Version.

This is a different paper popper, and can still be made with a rectangle. both models can be made with a rectangular sheet of newspaper for a louder bang. or in this case, a crack!!!
this popper makes a sound like a cracking wip.

Step 1: 1

Picture of 1

fold on the dark line through the middle

Step 2: 2

Picture of 2

fold the two corners down on each side, with the last fold from step 1 on the bottom. btw, the gray represents the other side of the paper.

Step 3: 3

Picture of 3

fold in half.

Step 4: 4

Picture of 4

fold on each side along the lines, middle fold first. the middle fold should be a mountain fold, and the other two shold be valley folds. flip over to get it oriented right for the next picture.

Step 5: 5

Well, you could pay attention to the "be nice" policy a bit. Sorry for my utter lack of video camera.

I, Personally, like these much better than the square ones. They are much more durable and, when you get it right, can give out a pop as loud as a cap gun shot. I have been making triangle ones for 4 years and i still stick with it.

what size paper, where are the first two folds supposed to stop, what's a mountain fold yours looks like a flat top, what's a valley fold and where, well I knew what you meant but my grand kids didn't. and what a pitiful pip it gets, yes I meant pip.

8 1/2 by 11". A mountain fold is when you fold the flap behind it, or "Backward" like from | to < with the point facing you.

Awesome! I'd seen these when I was a kid, but forgot how to make 'em. Thanks for posting this.

Spedy (author)Spoonman2006-10-31

Thanks for the comment. I learned about these in a prank book about 2 years ago and forgot how to make it until I saw it again on the web.
