Paper clips have a long history... Maybe not.
Paperclips fascinate me with there simplicity and usefulness. This is a tiny instructable on how to create a quick 2 minute catapult that launches anything from paper wasps to tiny notes.
For this project you need these items:
That is it! Lets get started
Step 1: Flat
First step is to obtain the paperclip. Take this paper clip and flatten it out as straight as you can! The hardest part is straightening out the end.
Step 2: First bends
Follow the picture above
Step 3: Curls
Go a half inch and curl the paperclip around a binder ring 5 times
Bend outwards the remanding paper clip outwards to make a L shaped form.
Step 5: BACK TO THE START
Next, your ready to launch. Load a paper wasp and let it fly!
