For this project you will need a gum wrapper, scissors, scorch (or clear) tape, and a battery.

Step 2: Cut a Strip

Cut a straight strip of the gum wrapper about as thick as a centimeter.

Take the strip of the gum wrapper and fold it as close to the middle as you can.

Step 4: The Cut

At the middle part of the strip (that is now the top) cut a small corner off to make a point. But be careful not to cut all the way though or it won't work.

Step 5: Go Outside

If you are inside, then you should go outside. Don't want to burn your house down.

Step 6: Taping

Put the sticky side of the tape on the ends of the nonmetal white side of the gum wrapper.

Step 8: Putting It All Together

Tape the ends of the wrapper down to the positive and negative sides (basically the ends) of the battery.

Step 9: Final Step to Greatness

Squeeze the + and - sides of the battery to push the wrapper down to make a short circuit. The flame starts from the middle and spreads to the ends of the battery. Be safe and have fun.
