Unbend the long side of the paperclip. Then straighten as much as you can with the pliers.

Bend the middle part of the short end. Then bend one more time.

Step 4: The Flag

Take a 2 inch strip of masking tape and fold it in half over the end of the paperclip.

Stretch the rubber band over 2 fingers then pull the helicopter on it on the hook part and let go.
