Make a Paper Rubber Band Gun

Introduction: Make a Paper Rubber Band Gun

In this instructable, I will show you how to make a simple rubber band gun using paper.


To make this, you will require:
• Papers
• Scissors
• Glue
• Step up action rubber band gun template from rbguns printed on one of the paper

Step 1: Glue the Paper

Take four or more sheets of thick (>140 gsm) paper and glue them together. It is important to make sure that the glue is evenly spread over the sheets.

Step 2: Straighten the Paper

After gluing, the paper sheets would be warped a bit. To straighten them, place a few books over the paper and add some weights (I used a big motor).

Step 3: Cut the Parts

Once the glue is dry, use scissors to cut the parts. It is important to make sure that the glue is completely dry before cutting out the layers will split apart.

After cutting the parts, we need to reinforce the cuts for loading rubber bands on parts 1 and 4.

We also need to add a few more layers of paper to part 2 so that the trigger moves smoothly.

Step 4: Assembly

The assembly is pretty easy. To assemble, first place part 4 on a flat surface. Then stick part 2 and 3 on it. Stick part 5 and 6 then sand its edges for it to move freely. Place it as shown in the picture. Then close using part 1.

Step 5: Done!

It is done! I made another one using green and white papers.
