Step 1: The Bow

Picture of The Bow

its consist of 2 wings and a body.
I added notch to tie the stings on to.

Step 2: Body

Picture of Body

I use Ice-Cream sticks to make the body and I stain it with a brown marker then use superglue to "varnish" it.
looks nice enough.

Step 3: Trigger Mechi

Picture of Trigger Mechi

i made the trigger out of paper and it's really strong.
Strong enough to hold the tension of the bands

its a simple lock 

Step 4: Making the Trigger Mech

I used a 4 layer harden paper, cut out 5 of the pieces and glue them together with superglue. Make sure you hammer the part after applying a layer of paper to compact the layers. After glueing the layers together sand down the parts (cut off excess) and apply a thin coat of super glue to further harden the parts and water proof it.
