DIY Paper Balisong (experimental)

Introduction: DIY Paper Balisong (experimental)

You need 2 pieces of paper

Step 1: Creating the Handles

Tear/cut one piece of paper in half, fold lengthwise before tearing/cutting. Then fold in half four times until it looks like picture 3.

Step 2: Perfecting the Handles

Tape the handle together so it looks like this. (Notice I didn't tape to top all the way since later a toothpick will be enthrusted). Do this to both handles.

Step 3: Making the Blade

Take a piece of paper and fold in half widthwise. Then fold in half lengthwise. Then fold it until it is about the same width as the handles. Unfold it once.

Step 4: Perfecting the Blade

Let a bit of the blade go above the handle. Mark it. Then cut it like in picture 3. Mark where you want to put the skewers in through. Then make the hole.

Step 5: Optional

Make the blade like this.

Step 6: Connecting the Handles and the Blade

Use skewers to put the handles and the blade together.

Step 7: Finished!

Have fun!
