How to make rubberband stars.

This is my entry into the "Forbes teach me fast" contest" on instructables. I made a similar video some time back, but I took it down because the video was not accepted due to a technicality. I made this revised video which also has better quality and does it the way Fungus wants it done.

I learned this little trick from my cousin a few years ago, and thought this would be an awesome entry for the contest.

My cousin for teaching me this trick
Instructables for the contest
My parents for buying me the camera and giving me permission to film in their bedroom (again).


Back to how much I rule
<p>but yes, hard to follow.</p>
<p>thats so cool!</p>
i did it like 2 seconds a diferent way
couldn't follow video very well, 'cause you did everything rather fast.
Youtube didn't really like raw AVI files, and it sped up the video on its own. This video is entirely unedited.<br>
my record was by 3 seconds
For a normal star or a double like in the video?<br />
How fast can you go? My record was about 5 seconds.
How'd you beat me?&nbsp;&nbsp;My record is 6 seconds.<br />
Hmm why did you make the devil`s star with an elastic band.
Don't know don't care.<br />
very,very,very,very,very,very,very,very,very,very fast.but you tried us to fool in 0:04 by making it overlaped AND can you make the star in a star and a hexagon?NO,yea i can
What the hell was that about? I am not trying to fool anyone at that time. I never sped up the video, youtube mucked it up. Nobody cares if you can make a hexagon or whatever the hell you were trying to do. Quit spewing BS on my video. Seriously, I can't understand anything you say.
Next time could you slow it down to take the full 30 seconds? pretty cool though
I really don't know why it sped up like that. I never edited it.
It speeds up if you make the full video shorter.
I never did that.
Oh :_ .
It's quite tricky but now I've cracked it it's really good. At least it was until my friend showed me his version: A star within a star! Still, it's a cool little thing :)
This is a star within a star.
Oh then I must have meant a star within a star within a star. I'm not too sure if it was 2 bands though...
It probably was.
Tight! Who's the creeper on the wall though?
uhhh... your mom? Im just kidding, I have no idea who he is. I filmed this in my parents bedroom.
It's kinda hard to follow which bands your pulling..
How so?
Your fingers get in the way. I guess it's impossible not to, though|!
Sorry about that, That does make it hard. Try to figure out what each of my fingers are doing, and it should be easier.
much better than the old ill try this =P<br/>
Good luck!
