If you do not have a birdie this might be useful.
Step 1: Tools & Materials
Tools: scissors, pencil, ruler, red or scarlet crayon
Materials: printer paper (white), Scotch tape, yarn(white), beans
Cut out a 8" by 8" square with a 2" by 2" red square in the middle. Fold with the red spot showing from right to left, and then, unfold. Repeat folding top to bottom. Next, fold with the the red spot NOT showing from top right corner to the bottom left corner, and then unfold. Repeat folding the top left corner to the bottom right corner.
Step 3: Put the Beans in the Birdie
Make sure the red dot is not showing. Put a few beans onto the birdie. (SIMPLEST STEP EVER)
Step 4: String It
Take a 6" long piece of yarn and make the front of the birdie and tie up the front.(MAKE SURE THE FRONT IS RED)
Step 5: Almost Done
Tape up the front of the birdie so that it has whack resistance.
Step 6: Finished
now that you're done here are some notes: this is my fist instructible. The birdie is NOT waterproof. cannot be aimed in wind.
Now you can go out back and play Badminton!
