Some years ago, a local organisation was asking us to come out an idea in making a paper flying butterfly based on the commercial available one. It should be easy for children to make and low cost.
They have tried and tested several model using paper clips and rubberband ..but the metal body is just to heavy to make it "FLY".
So we set to do some research and test, and found that by using a simple balloon stick (cut to small size) , a bead and a wire. With a cutout which you can download free from our website here :http://web.singnet.com.sg/~csqf2828/instruction.htm . We came out with the Rubber Band Flying Paper Butterfly.
With these simple and low cost materials , we make about 5000 pcs of parts to supply just in time for the children project carnival.
Or you can buy the ready one from Amazon Store .
