## Step 1: The materials and the Tools

First of all Thanks for choosing my instructable and i hope you enjoy it.
It is based on this instructable http://www.instructables.com/id/EY531XQ6DQEP287Z4P/
In order to make our kite we will need these:

Materials
A A4 Sheet of paper
A 10x10 cm sheet (you can make it by cutting a normal sheet )if you want you can make it with a post-it note
A pen or a pencil
Clear tape or masking tape ( i recommend using both)
Cotton or nylon string (the thinnest possible)
A small mauly ( #19)
a paperclip
NOT SHOWN:
A used Zip lock bag ( clean!)
a hole puncher ( optional)

Tools:
Swiss tool (or pliers and scissors and hobby knifr and magnifier)
Ruler
Marker
Calculator (optional)

## Step 2: Measure The sheet

well this step is virtually easy you need to take measure of the length and the height of the sheet
so we will make a "clone " of the sheet but in a really small size 3 times smaller you can use you mind or the calculator and write the final results in the center of the sheet
the measurements of the sheet must be
21.5 x 28 (centimeters not inches)
And Divide it in 3

## Step 3: Let's Make The "daugther" of the sheet

once you divide the results in 3 you need to make the small sheet out of the 10x10 sheet
Mark the small sheet with the pencil
you have no excuse the results are there
and mark the length and the heigth

for doing this first mark the length and a little line in the 7.1 one
and then the heigth like the last step and mark the 9.3

this sounds hard, but it's esay, use the photos for visual aid

## Step 4: Cut

Well The photo Explains The whole step itself

Remember cutting the heigth and the length with scissors or hobby knife

One more thing that you should do next time oyu write an instructable, is stick to words in the title that actually describe the project. A micron is 1E-6 m, I hightly doubt that your kite is infact that small, I was really looking forward to making a tiny kite :( (good job though)

Does it fly?
acaz93 (author)  jake2k38 years ago
actually only in windy days you can use it in calm days by cutting or reducing the tail depending in the situatiion

I think that using the word "Micro" would be better, because it gennerally used for small things. Even if they are not 1/10,000 (or is it 100,000?)
