    Search for Paper Claws - there are some other versions that should work.

    This would be great to see in welded metal!

    this is sooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! awsome thnx 4 instructions

    Simple, but cool instructable. Mine instantly fell apart, though.

    Great instuctable - works great, and lasted a few hundred throws before ripping. I didn't have good glue, so I used staples. We found throwing vertically over your head to work best, as it spins, but sometimes you can get a good throw with the normal methods.

    That is really cool. I made one and and when I threw it it fell apart. 'Tis now held together with staples rather than tape.

    What's with the night vision deal? You live in the ice cap or something?

    My sister says: "It is soooo cool!! Thanks for putting it on instructables!"

    AWESOME INSTRUCTABLE! The frisbee works great and it is fun and easy to make. Thanks for sharing it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My kids (7, 8 and 9) love these things. My son, the 8 year old, wears it like a crown when he's not throwing it. Why can't I rate it? I don't see the rating or the + - icons.

    OH! They moved it! I found it now. Added my +1 to it.

    Beautiful! Just made my own, waiting for the glue to dry!

    Why did you use night vision at the end? Just wondering. :P Nice job otherwise.

    You should add a link to the "paper-claws" instructable and post a video of how it flies.
