Introduction: Mini Paper Basketball Hoop

Mini paper basketball hoop great for a constant distraction from homework and other things and can take less than a minute to make.

Step 1: Materials

All you need is a 2 pieces of regular printer paper to make the hoop and the paper basketballs.

Step 2: Step 1

Fold the Top right corner down to form a triangle, with a small rectangle below it.

Step 3: Part 2

Now do the opposite and fold the Top left corner down to form a triangle, with a rectangle below it.

Step 4: Part 3

The next part is slightly tricky, you have to pinch the center of where the 4 triangle meets above the rectangle and then push the top down.

Step 5: Creating the Hoop

Now to form the hoop you have the triangle and you stick one end into the other forming a hole, push them in tight so they hold together and create a stable hoop.

Step 6: Creating the Stand Part 1

Now to form the stand theres the end of triangle in the back and you take those ends that are out to the side and you bring them to the center then crease the side of the paper.

Step 7: Creating the Stand Part 2

Now do the same thing with the other side and then the stand will be done.

Step 8: Paper Basketballs

Simply take a small piece of torn papr and crumbl into a ball.

Step 9: Finished Product

Now you have your 5 minute distraction during school and other things uninteresting.
