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

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.

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.
