Introduction: Digesting Dragon

This is a dragon that digests paper.

Step 1: Get the Following Materials:

You will need:

  • a soda bottle
  • paper
  • tape
  • a supply of water

Step 2: Lots of Tape

You will need lots of tape. I like to use a tape dispenser with rolls of tape that you can buy at Sam's Club.

Step 3: Eyes of the Dragon

Cut a strip of paper and put two dots on either side of it for eyes. Then get two pieces of tape and put one on each end. Then strap it to the part above the nozzle of the bottle.

Step 4: Scales on the Dragon

Cut small triangles of paper, then fold the ends up. Once you've folded the ends up, get some tape and put it on the folded ends. Then attach them to the back of your bottle dragon.

Step 5: A Tail for Your Dragon

Get a letter-sized piece of paper, roll into a tube, and use tape to make it stay as a tube. You can then use more tape to attach it to the bottom of the bottle dragon.

Step 6: Final Step

Pour water from a faucet into your bottle. Then, close the nozzle and you've got yourself a paper eating dragon.

Open the nozzle and put a small piece of paper inside. Close the nozzle and shake for about five minutes. The paper will be ground into a mushy pulp by the bottle dragon.

The final step is naming your dragon. Mine is named Fangs.

Pay attention at the back! It's for digesting paper!

Check Leperdy's profile,,

I wonder if dragon poop could be used to make more paper?

Hm... I think you're going to have to tape two half bottles together, so you can put a cap on both ends. Otherwise, you're just going to get dragon barf! ;-)
