Introduction: How to Make a Paper Fuse

Hello everyone! It's been a while since I've made an instructable. Today, I'm gonna show you how to make a paper fuse that works really well.

Step 1: Materials

To make a paper fuse, you will need:
•Black powder
•coffee filters
•hobby knife or scissors
•spoon
•water
•paper towels
•board

Step 2: Cut Your Coffee Filters

First, you have to cut the coffee filters into strips. They should be 1 inch wide and however long you want your fuses to be.

Step 3: Wetting Them Down

Next, Put your strip onto the wooden board and wet your paper towel. Use the paper towel to dampen your strip.

Step 4: Adding the Black Powder

Now, carefully spread the black powder evenly onto your coffee filter strip.

Step 5: Folding It Up

Next, fold your strip in half and then dampen it again with the wet paper towel.

Step 6: Rolling It Up

Start from the bottom left and carefully start to roll up your fuse at an angle.

Step 7: Finished!

Give it a good twist once it's all rolled up and wait for it to dry. Once it's dry, you'll have a useable fuse that works very well.
