Along with paper airplanes my dad made these for me all the time when I was younger. Simple fun switchblades you came make with just 3 Popsicle sticks...
What you need: 3 Popsicle Sticks 2 Rubber bands Options: Wire cutters
Cut about an inch off the end of one stick. Making a sharp point is optional.
Next you will want to cut 1.25" piece off the second stick. And then cut another smaller piece off the longer end about a 1/4 will do.
The image shows how the knife will be laid out.
Wrap rubber band around the blade and handle. Not to tight, the blade must be able to rotate 180 degrees.
Place the small 1/4" piece on the handle then put the 1.25" piece on top. And wrap with the rubber band.
Rotate the blade, squeeze the switch open and clasp the blade.
