Step 4: The Hard Part

Now, somehow stretch the two rubber bands across the wheels to act as a bowstring. Then wrap them around the two rods holding the snowflake piece up like in the picture.

Step 5: Holding the bow and Firing

Hold the bow as shown in the picture, the arrow (any long rod) goes through the center of the snowflake piece, Pull it back however you like.

It's good because it's small. But how do you do the 4th step?
I REALY like your idea I think you should step it up a notch though.

How in the world did you do this step ><
General Eggs (author)  iamGEO5 years ago
It's one of the hard steps, and it's hard to explain
Maybe thats why im asking ==
Is it one long rubber band or is it two? because you said stretch two but i dont see how you can do that ><
do you have more pictures on different angles?
General Eggs (author)  iamGEO5 years ago
it's two rubber bands right next to each other, wrapped around the same way. sry, the rubber bands look wierd because I liked the look of them.
