Introduction: Paper Retractable Knife

Safe, simple, portable knife with no sharp edges at all (aaaw) Just pull out a peice of paper and make yourself a totaly blunt knife. Can be used for show or reinforced for combat

Step 1: Teh First Step

Fold your peice of paper in half longways. (simple so far, huh?)

Step 2: Unfold It

After you have folded it in half, unfold it. Then, take the top two corners, and fold them along the crease you just made. When done, it should look like the picture

Step 3: Step 3

Fold the bottom left and right corners of the triangle made by he last fold. Fold them along the crease like you are making a paper airplane. Compare it to the picture.

Step 4: Folding Again

Now. This one you have to watch on. Fold along the purple lines in picture one to gt picture two. it is hard to explain, but i think you could manage. I will try to explain though. Fold the bottom part at the end of the diagonal part of the paper. Make it look like the picture =D

Step 5: Cut Along the Dotted Line

Look at the picture and cut along the dotted line. After yyou do that, fold the peices in so it looks like one of the pictures. It may not be exact, though...

Step 6: Easy Step

Fold it in half. Then, hold on to the"blade" and fold it backwards, concealing it in the folds you made with the dotted lines. Im sorry, its just a tad hard to explain this part, but do your best, It should look like the finished product when your done =) Thanks for looking at my instructable, and ask if you need sme help. I will try to help you(>_)>
