Introduction: Support a Bottle With Just a Sheet of Paper

Turn a flimsy 6g piece of paper into a heavy weight that will support more than 170 times its own weight. Just change its shape with a few folds and you'll be amazed how you can amaze your less science savvy friends.

    Does it work without a cd case? It seems that it helps to divide the weight of the wine bottle.

    I tried first it without the CD case and the paper held up the bottle fine, a flat base helps to spread the load across the paper ridges. I also used a beer mat between the bottle and paper and that worked well.

    As mentioned above I initially experimented with a beer mat between the bottle and paper which did not span the gap and the paper held. I eventually used the CD case purely because it seemed more "visible" in the video.
