Step 1: Materials
This is a pretty short list. All you'll need is......
-A pen(this is a classic one that you can probably find at any basic office supply store)
-Rubber bands(at least two)
Step 2: Step One
Take your pen and separate all of the parts. You'll need them all!!
Step 3: Step 2
Take the small tube piece and rubber band it to the middle of the outer part of the pen, like so. you could glue it too....if you wanted.
Step 4: Step 3
Take another rubber band and put it around the pen like so, making sure it is positioned in the middle of each end.
Step 5: Step 4
Tape one end of the pen to keep the rubber band from moving.
Step 6: Step 5
Put the pen cap on the other end to finish of the bow part! :D
Step 7: Step 7
Load the ink piece of the pen through the tube, pull back and release! I've gotten it to shoot up to around 15-20 feet when i had a good band! Enjoy, and good luck in your office wars!
