This is a different paper popper, and can still be made with a rectangle. both models can be made with a rectangular sheet of newspaper for a louder bang. or in this case, a crack!!!
this popper makes a sound like a cracking wip.

Step 1: 1

fold on the dark line through the middle

Step 2: 2

fold the two corners down on each side, with the last fold from step 1 on the bottom. btw, the gray represents the other side of the paper.

Step 3: 3

fold in half.

Step 4: 4

fold on each side along the lines, middle fold first. the middle fold should be a mountain fold, and the other two shold be valley folds. flip over to get it oriented right for the next picture.

Step 5: 5

eek, forgot about the end... sorry. here it is.

    Well, you could pay attention to the "be nice" policy a bit. Sorry for my utter lack of video camera.

    I, Personally, like these much better than the square ones. They are much more durable and, when you get it right, can give out a pop as loud as a cap gun shot. I have been making triangle ones for 4 years and i still stick with it.

    8 1/2 by 11". A mountain fold is when you fold the flap behind it, or "Backward" like from | to < with the point facing you.

    Thanks for the comment. I learned about these in a prank book about 2 years ago and forgot how to make it until I saw it again on the web.

    This is definately rad. I remember these from when I was a little kid. Also, don't take shit from kids who can't even formulate a complete sentence.
