I've been wanting to make an office bow for quite a long time, so I finally decided it was time to make one! It's really easy, and it shoots a great distance.
Lets get to it!
Step 1: Murder The Pen!
First, here is a list of everything you'll need:
-Any generic pen that has a button at the top
-A rubber band
-Crochet hook (very useful to pull stuff through the pen, but it needs to be small!)
Now, unscrew the lid, and take all of the insides out. (The ink part, the spring, the button, etc.) Put the lid back on, and proceed to the next step.
Step 2: Join And Insert The Paperclips
Depending on how long your pen is, you may need more. But I used 3 paperclips. straighten the paperclips out, and then wrap the ends together to form a chain. now, insert the chain into the pen.
Now you need to insert paperclips inside of the pen. You could probably just use rubber bands or something, but I decided to use paperclips. I then straightened three paperclips out, and then wrapped the ends together to form a chain. You might need more depending on how long your pen is. Insert that chain into the pen. It needs to be long enough to stick out of the pen on both ends, but not a lot.
*Make sure that the chain is securely connected, or you could possibly get hurt while using the bow.*
