Take the needle and place it centrally (from above) between the matches. Stick it to half into it, but do not hurt yourself !!! Needle is sharp !!!

Step 4: Fix the Needle

Now take the thread and wrap it around the matches in order to fix the needle. Wrap around about 15 - 20 times.

Stuck the end between the matches to fix it. Than cut it off.

Step 5: The Dart - Flights

Take the paper ( 5 x 5 cm ) and fold it as you can see at the photo. It's easy to do, but not easy to explain just by writing, sorry ;-)

Cool. I will have to try this out soon. How long are the needles?

Now, if you twist the fins so they are wrapped around the 'dart', you can put them into a straw and have blow-darts. When we did this as kids, we used a single wooden kitchen match, cut a cross on one end, cut the match-head off, cut the head of a pin off, and inserted the pin into the match. Two small strips of paper in the cross for fins; hold the fins lightly and rotate the match so that the fins are flat against the match and insert into a straw. You can put an eye out - do not ever shoot this at a living thing.

Wow, great! I made it.

If you burn the matches (dangerous, I know), and then throw it, it would be pretty cool.
