Introduction: How to Make a Parachute
I used a plastic bag to make a plastic parachute.
Step 1: Step 1 : Cut the Plastic Bag Into a Square
First take a plastic and remove the edges of the plastic bag then cut it in half to make one square.
Step 2: Fold the Plastic Four Times Into a Triangle Then Cut the Plastic Into a Circle
Next use the square you have fold one edge of the plastic bag until it meets with the bottom, then remove the extra square from the plastic bag you are left with a triangle, from there you take the bottom of the triangle fold it until it meets the top of the triangle,and then make a second fold, you will get a even smaller triangle fold the bottom edge of the triangle until you have a long triangle on one side including a small triangle on the other end then cut the triangles from the marked line.
Step 3: Making the Holes on the Circle
Cut out a small hole but don't make the hole to big then open the plastic up and you should find a circle.
Step 4: Tie the String Through All the Holes
After that take some string and put the string through all the holes and tie a knot after each string is put through the 16 holes.
Step 5: The Plastic Parachute Is Finished
At last your parachute is done and you can tie a little character on to your parachute
Step 6: Video
The plastic parachute is released and flies in the sky.
