On this instructables, I will show you how to make my improved version of a clothes-pin clip gun. It is very easy, powerful, and tiny.
You need:
A wooden clothes pin clip
A saw
A rubberband
Hotglue

Step 1: Step1

Step 3: Step3

Here is the result of the last three steps. Now continue to assemble.

Step 5: Step5

Do you think it would work without a handle? I would like to make one that could more easily fit in a pocket.
