Step 2: Build!

Picture of Build!

  1. Lay pen on pencil approx. center
  2. Wrap you tape diagonally both ways around pen and pencil
  3. Cut a rubber band with your knife or scissors
  4. Tape the rubber band to both ends of the pencil. Your rubber band should be very tight
  5. I taped the ends up because my rubber band kept slipping out this prevented it from continuing.

Step 3: Load and Shoot

Load you pen innards into the pen barrel.

Shot from chest height I got mine to shoot roughly 65 feet!!
