On this instructables, I will show you how to make my improved version of a clothes-pin clip gun. It is very easy, powerful, and tiny.
You need:
A wooden clothes pin clip
A saw
A rubberband
Hotglue

Step 1: Step1

First, disassemble the clip.

Step 2: Step2

Next, take any of the two pieces of wood. Cut to the right of the large dip on the far right of the picture. Do this for both.

Step 3: Step3

Take the second piece and cut a notch on the left side of the large dip.

Step 4: Step4

Here is the result of the last three steps. Now continue to assemble.

Step 5: Step5

Take the large piece with the notch and, with hotglue, attach a handle as indicated. You should make it fairly sturdy.

Step 6: Step6

Install spring and loosely tie top piece using rubberband.

Step 7: Step7

Use the pictures as a reference to load. Look closely. Insert anything that fits between the wooden pieces. Pull the spring like a trigger to fire.

    Do you think it would work without a handle? I would like to make one that could more easily fit in a pocket.
