You need:

  • 2 popsicle sticks
  • rubber band
  • bottle cap
  • Matches
  • Hot glue gun
  • Soldering iron
  • Nippers
  • Marker

Step 2: Preparing the Bottle Cap

Draw a cross on the bottle cap. Mark on each end of the cross 1 centimeter on the side of the bottle cap. Seen from above, the upper and lower approximately 3 millimeters from the top, the left and right 5 millimeters from the upper edge.

Use the soldering iron to open the markings on the sides. These are about 11 millimeters wide.

This is an exact copy of DaveHax's design.

Checked and it is not. It is similar in design, however this one uses a different way of spanning the rubber band resembling a bit more like a crossbow.
