Introduction: Popsicle Stick Switchblade
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 and 2 Rubber Bands.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
What you need:
3 Popsicle Sticks
2 Rubber bands
Step 2: Making the Blade
Cut about an inch off the end of one stick. Making a sharp point is optional.
Step 3: Making the Switch
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.
Step 4: Assembly
The image shows how the knife will be laid out.
Step 5: Attach the Blade
Wrap rubber band around the blade and handle. Not to tight, the blade must be able to rotate 180 degrees.
Step 6: Assembling the Switch
Place the small 1/4" piece on the handle then put the 1.25" piece on top. And wrap with the rubber band.
Step 7: Operating the Knife
Rotate the blade, squeeze the switch open and clasp the blade.
