Step 1: Materials

a peice of paper. ya. thats it.

Step 2: Folding

just fold the paper into 4ths. the short way. like in the pics.

then fold the whole thing in half so the loose end of the paper is on the inside.(last 2 pics).

Step 3: Poping!

now here is the hard part to explain.

pull the two loose corners of the paper up and pinch the bottom corner below that.

your'e all set. now there should be two little pockets at the top of the popper. point that down, and hold it about at your ear.

now swing down so the air catches those pockets and "pops" them open. if you did it right it will create a loud bang.

if it didnt work, or it isnt very loud, try making the creases sharper, or swinging your arm harder.

I saw someone used this at school during lunch and I asked him how did you do that and the guy said You mean like this? While popping the paper in my face. An adult saw this happened and the guy got suspended for 4 weeks lol.

once you build it, its all in the wrist flick. make sure the part that "pops" open is catching lots of air. good luck and have fun!

everyone was doing this last year at school and the teachers got so pissed off at us. they would tell us to throw the paper away and we would just make another.

Cool! The video really helped me figure out how to "pop" it.
It's cool but there are easier and better ways.
If I'll have time, I'm going to make instructions...
But yours is cool too...

how do you make those two losse corners
jaknife1102 (author)  travis777 years ago
after you fold it in fourths, you fold it in half with the edge of the paper on the inside... does that make sense?

This isn't exactly "annoying" or "cool", you could easily make a louder noise by slamming your fist onto a table top XD. I DID get it to work after I used some common sense to fold it correctly. Still a clever idea though, don't get me wrong.
worked perfectly for me :D
I really liked to see, you took the effort to make this instructable
