Step 4: Add the tail

Picture of Add the tail

Just make your self a nice tail as decorative as you want, and tape it onto the bottom.

Step 5: Attach your string, and DONE!


Just attach your string any way you want, the most common ways are to attach to all the corners, or to attach to the center only. I normally use fishing line on my small kites. Once you attach your string, you are ready to fly.

Step 6: Be ready to..


Just be warned that this is only a cheap, quick kite. It is not sturdy, or suited to any real flying. Be prepared to crash and burn, and if you do fly this just bring the roll of duct tape. The one time i got one of these to any real height, it tore and came crashing to earth in a nice little heap, breaking the thin sticks i had used for it that time. But still this project is a fun little one.
Is the backside of yur kite sticky from the backside of the tape?
If yes, put a thin plastic bag (may be from a wegetables-market) on it, fasten it by pressing with your hands and cut avay, what looks over the kites edges.
