This little widget doesn't take much building, and will flutter across a room.
(No video because I ran out of bands in prototyping, and I need to get this posted before the deadline.)
Step 1: Materials and Tools
The materials you need:
- Three paperclips. I used large ones that opened out to 15cm long, but I see no reason why this wouldn't work with ordinary clips.
- An elastic band, sized to match your clips (the ones I used were 6cm long).
- Paper - stiff and light for preference.
- Pliers (two pairs could make life easier).
- Glue or tape.
- Scissors or craft knife.
