Introduction: Pocket Sized Explosion
In this instructable, you will learn how make a cool, fun, and harmless explosion that is a cool party trick. All you need for this Instructable is a piece of white paper, scissors, and a regular cigarette lighter.
Step 1: Making a Square
Many of you probably already know this trick, but just in case you dont, this is how you make a square out of a regular peice of printer paper.
First take the top right corner and fold it over untill the top of the paper meets the left side.
Next you need to take the bottom peoce of paper that is hanging out and cut with your scissors across the line of the flap. Then unfold and you have a square.
Step 2: The Triangle
This is hard to describe, but what i did was i made a pyramid and then i pushed two side into it untill they met. Then you lay it flat so it looks like a paper triangle.
Step 3: Folding
Now you want to take the bottom corners and meet them with the top point. You need to do this on the right and left side, then turn it over and do the right and left side again.
Step 4: More Folding
Now the paper should look like the first picture. Now, you want to take the right and left corners and fold them into the middle. Then, turn over and do the same on the other side.
Step 5: A Little More Folding...
Now, the previously folded flaps should have an openning on one side. Take the bottem flap and insert it into the opening. Do this on all sides.
Step 6: UN Folding...
Now you should be able to unfold it to were it looks like and X. There should be a small hole on one side. You may want to cut the hole a little bigger. Next you need to blow up the "balloon" so it looks like picture two.
Step 7: Now for the Lighter...
Okay, now you take the lighter, and put it very close to the hole. Hold down the button so that the lighter fluid flows into the balloon for about four-six seconds. Then, keep the lighter in the same place, and ignite it! The balloon should shoot three-five feet!
