Introduction: How to Make a Paper Battle Crasher

Hello people! Today I will show you how to make a Paper Battle Crasher.

Please don't be harsh as this is my first instructable, so if you have any suggestions please post as I would like to improve...Thanks

Step 1: Materials

Well pretty much just paper......LOL

Step 2: Step 1 of Folding

Get a piece of paper (printer paper is fine) and fold it in half

Step 3: Step 2 of Folding

On one end, fold the edge diagonally so that it lines up with the border and unfold.

Step 4: Step 3 of Folding

Repeat step two on the other side

Step 5: Step 4 of Folding

Turn the paper over and fold the paper so that it touches the border of the diagonal creases.

Step 6: Step 6 of Folding

Repeat steps 2-5 on other side (UGH)

Step 7: Step 7 of Folding

Fold the two flaps sticking up so it matches up with the half-way point.

EDIT: If you guys are familiar with origami, then this project uses two water bomb base folds on each ends

Step 8:

Lift the two separate flaps to one side and fold to the half-way point and repeat on the other side

Step 9: Step 9 of Folding

fold the figure in half and tuck the points in the slits and fold the end up for flicking and DONE....

*phew*

Step 10: For Those Who Do Not Know How to Use This

It is simply flicked on a surface and if two were made, they can battle ( much like crashing cars head-on) And here is a photo of the finished product  l  ( down at the photos!)

this is pretty useless, i made one and it dies when you flick it, and it would be pretty boring to try to flick folded paper at each other

Actually, these were meant to be flick on a flat surface( tables,the floor, your bed, etc.) and then it would go, but yes, it does stop at a point, but I made this out of boredom, and this looks cool, and I felt like sharing this to everyone, so your opinion is just fine with me.

nice answer, i would recommend that you neaten up your art because it's really hard to understand what your doing in each step, there may even be a feature on the program to auto straighten the lines that you make.

Two things:
  • Photos would be good (especially of the final object)
  • What is a "Battle Crasher", and how does one use it?

Well, there's always the possibility he doesn't have a camera. Though he still might have taken the time to give more detailed instructions or better drawing. There is a straight line tool in paint, no? It looks like you might flick it off your palm/finger? Not really sure about that one =S
