Introduction: Paper Missles

Picture of Paper Missles

me and my mates where messing around in maths and we got this great idea

Step 1: Step One:materials

Picture of Step One:materials

you will need
paper as much as you want
paper clips
and elastic band

Step 2: Step 1

Picture of Step 1

first rip off a strip of paper

Step 3: Step 3

Picture of Step 3

now unbend the paper clip and measure it to the with the shirt side of the paper make sure it go's all the way across then u can eather use some wire cutters or bend it to brake it then u have to fold it so the paper clip part is on the inside of the paper and then you should have it then all you do is bend it then get your elastic band and fire away

i will not be held responsible for any one who harms some one because this thing can hurt you if it hit you in the eye that is the only dangerous place so please use it wisely and aim for there back or body's not the head only aim at people you know and are playing with not animals

if you make them the right size you can put staples on the end. then they become killer wasps. Not saying you should though(disclaimer).

My school they were "Paper Wasps" but we preferred used rivets bent at 90 degrees, at least till someone got hurt.....

Tommyhzy (author)daninja2009-02-14

... My version of that is: It's all just fun 'n' games until someone loses an eye... THEN IT"S FREAKIN' HILARIOUS!!!

regipalka (author)2008-12-23

In my school these got banned because ppl got hit in the eye

zeke34 (author)2008-08-30

At my school we fold the paper and then put two staples in it and bend it. Short chunks of straw work too.

Gonnser (author)2008-07-05

yah we make these in our school, but we call them hornets. we dont use paperclips either. We just fold up the paper.

Ghetto Gun Maker (author)2008-05-28

I make these all the time and shoot kids at school but i havnt thought of putting metal in them

tinman250 (author)2008-05-15

nice work dude but instead of using the stick to wrap it up use electrical wire and then wrap electrical tape around the wire fold it and then see what happens just think about it OK. p.s this comment will self destruct in 5..4..3..2.. damit my watch broke

!Andrew_Modder! (author)2007-08-08

Erik Lindemann (author)2007-08-08

Yeah, I'm fairly sure this isn't a new idea. We've (and by "we" I mean my buddies and I) been making them for 6 years now.

TT__TT (author)Erik Lindemann2007-08-08

yeah i just could not find it on here so i thought i might post it on

Weissensteinburg (author)TT__TT2007-08-08

They're commonly called hornets.

i call them tacos

khd1991 (author)garrettmikesmith2007-12-21

At my school, we call them wasps... They are only called hornets around here if they have a needle or some other sharp object sticking through the middle of the tip. I don't do that though, i only make my own wasps to use... nobody else makes them my way though

Erik Lindemann (author)TT__TT2007-08-08

Oh, alrighty.

nanor11395 (author)2007-10-26

why do you have to put paper on the paper clips? the paperclip itself is stealthy and painful.

TT__TT (author)drake2007-08-09

because i got in trouble for throwing paper clips at the teacher so i added added some paper so it hurt him less

snipegoat (author)2007-08-09

i call them horrnets because of gerrettmikesmith i am very hungry and have a new name for them (yay), and my dads been makeing these from whene he was a kid and his 53 (yes im a teen)

drake (author)2007-08-08

I got hit by a small, rolled up piece of paper and it left a blue mark

Harry Manback (author)2007-08-08

TT__TT (author)Harry Manback2007-08-08

AdamK (author)2007-08-08

Second only to orange peel launchers. :) Classic. The metal strip provides extra ouch and more bruising.
