These wings may not help you fly, but they look pretty cool in motion! I discovered this project While thinking about what I could make with a binder. Pretty weird, right? Let me show you how to make them!

Step 1: Materials:

Paracord. One piece, 145cm, two pieces, about 80cm, a binder, and an X-Acto knife.

Step 2: Mark!

Mark a line with a straight edge (I used a meter stick) on the second ring. Then mark an “x” on the edge of the binder. Make sure to do this on both ends!

Step 3: Cut!

Use the X-Acto knife to cut a hole in the binder where the “x” is.

Step 4: Paracord!

Loop the cord around the edge and through the hole then tie it. remember to do this on both sides!

Step 5: Pull!

Pull the string through the bottom two rings.

Step 6: Cut! (again)

Cut holes by the top and bottom ring (4 holes in all).

Step 7: Arm Straps!

Thread the two shorter paracords pieces through the holes you just made. Then tie the ends together.

Step 8: FLY!

Pull the string on the back.

Tip: Use a lighter to bond the paracord together!
