Step 1: Gather Materials

To make the noisemaker, you will need:

1 Plastic Straw
Tools:
Scissors

Step 2: Cut and Prep the Straw

If your straw has a flexible joint, cut that off.
Then, squish the straw by pressing it against the table, counter, or any other surface. It will need to be pretty flat. Next, take your scissors and cut the sides off of the squished end of the straw, at a diagonal.
This piece will vibrate in your mouth, causing the buzz effect.

Step 3: Add the Amplifier

Coil the piece of paper and tape to the straw. I found it was easier to tape the coiled paper on to the straw first, and then add the piece of tape that keeps the coil coiled. Remember to leave the pointy cut edge of the straw facing out.

Step 4: USE!!!!!!

To use the noise-maker, put the pointy end of the straw in your mouth. When you blow, the air causes the two flaps to vibrate, creating the buzz!
