Introduction: Paper Tack Darts!

This will teach you how to make tack darts made from paper and a tack! 

Step 1: The Elements

Materials needed: Tape, paper or stick notes, hot glue. (optional)

Step 2: Constructing Thy Dart's Body

First, roll up the first sticky note/paper. secure with tape. Tape the bottom of the tack to the paper roll as shown. then take about 1 inch off the other paper and wrap it around the tack and paper roll. Tape as shown.

Step 3: The Stabilizers

First, cut the left over paper into identical triangles. tape them to the side of the body as in the picture, with tape.
OPTIONAL STEP: Fill the hollow body with your hot glue gun, to make it stiffer.

Step 4: Finish

How to throw:
Hold it like a pencil, then throw like a dart.
CAUTION:
Do not throw at pets, humans, other mammals, and stuff like that.
OTHER STUFF:
Good to use for the balloon dart game! (See my other instructables.)
ALSO:
You can fold the stabilizers of the dart one way so it spins while it flies through the air!
