This article of desktop weaponry accommodates multiple rounds of ammunition, launches exploding tipped cross-bow bolts, and slings wooden matches over 30 feet away. In this project we're turning some ordinary household items, into a surprisingly versatile, micro-crossbow.

Step 1: Watch the Video!

WARNING: The depictions of launching sparklers in this video are for demonstrational purposes only and are not intended to be duplicated. While this little contraption is micro-scale, it can still be dangerous to some degree. Use care and caution when choosing your ammunition, be aware of your surroundings, and never shoot at people or property. There may be risks associated with these projects that require experience, and/or adult supervision. Use of video content is at your own risk.

I made mine with some basswood slats from blinds and braided monofilament fishing line for the bowstring. I think it turned out nice.
Can you double up the bows to make it stronger? Just wondering.
This is awesome. Definitely making one.
what if the clips don't have holes or they do but they don't go all the way through

<p>I Made it!</p>
Sweet, I like it. The Mockingjay at the end was pretty cool too.
<p>AWESOME.I dont made it but i will try.i want to play this with my nerf.</p>
<p>Thanks so, so much for this! I'm a medieval reenactor so this is right own my street! Made a larger version for my partner's birthday present out of basswood and large hair clips and it worked out quite well; see what you think :) The bolts are made from kebab skewers :P I'm going to be making a wrist mounted one too, attached to a leather gauntlet (I do like making leather things) with a hand operated trigger system. Looking forward to trying it out! :D</p>
<p>I cant get the template</p>
<p>If you are required to give an email to get the template, I do not consider that to be free. </p>
<p>Very cool instructable. You could insert a needle into a match that has the head cut off (or just the back end) then it could stick into things.</p>
<p>Could you shoot flaming bolts too?</p>
<p>I am still trying to get the template!</p>
<p>i want the cut templte</p>
<p>My attempt. I feel I did pretty good.</p>
easy fun :)
