Picture of Q-Tip Shooter
I decided to make this to punish kids who were shooting spitballs in class. This is perfect for hitting people without using saliva. It hurts a little but is revenge for shooting spitballs!

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
Gather your materials. You will need:
-A pen (I used Bic Comfort Stic)
-A rubberband
-Scotch tape
-A kinfe/scissors

Step 2: Disassembly

Take the pen apart and use your sharp object to pop the back part off.

Step 3: Attaching The Rubberband

Cut the rubberband down to size. Now take one piece and attach it to one side of the pen tube. Use tape to go over the parts attached to the pen. (This is hard to explain so just use the pictures as a guide.) You might want to cut notches on the end of the pen tube to better hold down the elastic band.

Step 4: Loading The Shooter

To load the Q-Tip, put it in on the other side and use something to ram it down. (I use the ink cartridge from the pen.) Then when the rubberband begins to stretch, take the Q-Tip on the other side and pull it out. The frther you pull the faster and harder the Q-Tip will shoot but the chances of the rubberband breaking increase. (Obviously, let go to fire.)

Nice, I built one myself. However, I added super glue in order to make the rubber band stay, since the rubber band wasn't staying. I've had it for a few weeks, and it shoots about 15 feet.
that knife is beast!

What you say, God did that? I told him to take the credit for it so I could act like a 2 year old and reply to all these comments.

I agree, do I have to say that I am joking?
Also, not joking, and kinda related to this topic, I got a 1209( I think?) on the SAT's, and I am 13
This is really off topic, but funny
Is it? Or is the instructable off topic and this post is not?
oh yeah, well that's nothing compared to conguring the univers out of thin air, is it?!?!?!?! none of you would even be here if it weren't for me, so stop arguing!
I created your mom.

lol im retarted, i looked at the materials and figured id do ti without the intructable, did it all except how you shoot it lol, and btw it could be a match shooter also
if you use it as a match shooter and put the match scratcher thing that lights the match, then you could shoot fire!
i dnt have elastics anything i can use instead
mahwhahahaha I can shoOt the Q-tip of DOOM, thats right, DOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Q-Tip of DOOM.JPG
i made i dart for my blow gun like that, i cut a qtip in half, shoved the wooden end of a match inside it, then super glued a needle to the match so it would stick hehehehe
perfect idea, the needle sticks in, while the tip is still burning, i should have conceived that years ago...
I can't believe it's been three years since I posted that...
um thats scary...
