How to Make a Powerful, Fast Hornet!





Introduction: How to Make a Powerful, Fast Hornet!

This is my first Instructable, so all comments are welcome (positive and negative, as long as I get feedback!).

Anyways, I will show you how to make a good paper hornet! I see a lot of Instructables saying you can only make good hornets with note cards, or they show a bad way of folding. In this Instructable, I will show you ow to make  hornet out of post- it notes that is both fast and powerful, and has good range and accuracy!

P.S. I know my bracelet is pretty girly for a guy to be wearing, but my grandma passed away a few weeks ago from Melanoma (cancer) and black represents Melanoma. Please also check out

Step 1: Materials

You will need:

1. A rubberband

2. post- it notes

Step 2: Fold Number One

First, you need to fold the post- it note one time in half

Step 3: Fold Number Two

Now, fold the note again in the same direction.

Step 4: Fold Number Three

Next, fold the post- it note one time, but this time in the OPPOSITE DIRECTION then the first two steps.

Step 5: Fold Number Four

Now, fold the post- it note in the same direction as the first two steps.

Step 6: Last Fold

Lastly, fold the post- it note the same way you did in step four, the opposite of what you just did.

Step 7: Fire!

Not, put the hornet on a rubberband, pull back, and let fly!

    Nice instructable, well taught and good hornets! :D

    I make mine out of index cards, they leave welts and are way better

    O.K., this is pretty good. I made one too, except its called a v-bomb. No idea why (I guess because of the v shape), but thats what they're called around here where I live. Any way nice job.

    where I'm from we call them paper tacos but i guess it's different from place to place

    Oh, also you're user name is close to mine. Was that on purpose?
