Step 2: The Pipe

Picture of The Pipe

Take three pieces of paper and tape them together to look like one thick piece of paper.

Roll it up and tape it to make the pipe. It should be small enough to put your mouth around it.

Step 3: The Dart

Cut a rectangle out of the remaining piece of paper.

Roll it up so one end is smaller than the other and tape it.

Cut a small square out of the paper.

Tape it to the small end of the dart.

Put another piece of tape on the other side to make it look like that.

Now, take a piece of tape and stretch it around the top of the dart so it looks like a cone.

great prototype, but why dont you use something like duct tape around the place you put your mouth so that your salyva doesnt eat away at the paper. I know from experiencd, and actually got a piec of paper in my throat :D
