Step 1: What You Need

- An on/off switch
- a 9volt battery clip (if you don't have one check out my instructable on how to make one by going to my page and looking under my instructables)

- Duct tape
- a small fan ( I got mine out of a power supply from an old computer)
- Wire strippers

Step 2: Step 1

you will first need to strip all the wires and cut them down to size to make this project as small as possible

Step 3: Step 2

Now you will need to make all the connections be careful that you connections are positive to negative all the way through or your fan will go backwards and you wont feel a breeze 
now you can twist the connections together and either tape them or put a wire nut on them to secure the connections

Step 4: Step 3

Now you can tape it all together and add a 9 volt battery  and you have a portable fan

Step 5: Finished

Now you have a portable fan that has numerous uses, and I plan to make a usb fan soon so look out for that
