Step 1: Step 1

The first step is to fold the Post-it-Note from corner to corner as seen in the Picture.
*repeat in both directions so that a "X" has be made in the creases*

Step 2: Step 2

The next step is to fold the Post-it-Note so that it looks like shown in the picture! It is a simple fold but is difficult to describe.

Step 3: Step 3

Next you will need to push the Thumb Tack through the bottom of the Post-it-Note so that is pokes through the bottom of the folds.
You will need to place a piece of tape over it so that it stays in place!

Step 4: Step 4

Finally you will need to tape the wings of the dart together so that it is durable past the first throw!
You may wish to fold the wing tips to make it fly better or straighter.

Step 5: Finished!

Now hold the dart by one of the corners and throw it at something (that is not living) and enjoy!
