Step 1: Starting With...

You will need the following:

8 paper claws.(if you don't know how to make them, here's the URL https://www.instructables.com/id/Paper-Claws!/)

cello tape

Energy(to throw the Frisbee)

Step 2: Making the Frisbee

Take a claw, and insert your finger at the small triangle in the back.Then take another claw.Notice that the front part is pointed?Now push this pointed edge inside the small triangle in which you usually insert your finger.Tape the center where the two have been joined.Keep doing this with all of the claws till you get a sunflower-outlined shape.







Step 3: Congratulations!

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

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.

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.

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.
