Picture of Rubber Band Flying Paper Butterfly

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 .

I made the butterfly, but it doesn't fly well, it goes down, sorts of a freefall. What can I be doing wrong?

Hi Sorry for the late reply.

The body may be too heavy and you need to put oil between bead and rotating wire.

will a straw work for the tube?
Kiddyhub (author)  oldanvilyoungsmith6 years ago
straw is too soft...the tension from the rubber band will crush it :)
tape electical tape around the straw, to make it more sturdy
