Introduction: Make a Paper Boomer

I will teach you how to use a single sheet of paper to make a BIG BOOM. All you need is one piece of paper.

Step 1: Step 1#

Fold the piece of paper hamburger style, but leave about a centimeter of space on the top side facing you.

Step 2: Step 2#

Fold it hamburger style again, have the side facing you folded.

Step 3: To Use

To use hold it like the pictures below and flick your wrist forward, you probably wont get it the first time but keep trying.

I wonder if it's due to my age, or a regionalism, or what... but where are you from? I've never heard of "fold hamburger style" until this moment.

It's the American way of saying "fold the short sides together". If you fold the long sides together, it's hotdog style.

Kiteman, I must admit it's a bit funny for you to be explaining this to me, as I recall you're a Brit (and I'm from the Midwestern US). That's why I asked where the author was from. Neither my wife nor I (both from Wisconsin) have ever heard of this. ;)

I made one of those in 4th grade and I couldn't remember how and I've been wanting to know how for the last 12 or so years.
