Hornet Launcher Mini-Bow

Introduction: Hornet Launcher Mini-Bow

Hi. I may not post much, but I will when I create something or even remember I want to post something :p. I may also be late only replies to comments because I may forget to check for new comments. This is my first post, so please don't be too harsh with your comments. So, today, I thought of my OWN way to launch hornets: A mini-bow :D!
    You will need:
Two small paperclips(The smallest kind, they are colored)
One index card(Standard sized)
One rubber band(Standard sized)

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Step 1

The first thing you need to do is bend two paperclips into a straight line.(The straighter the better.)

Step 2:

Now, the next thing you do is tape the two together, like this.

Step 3:

Roll the two paperclips up in an index card as tight as possible and tape it all up.

Step 4:

Bend that thing that you just made into the shape of a bow.

Step 5:

Bend the top ends of the index card forward, like this.

Step 6:

Put a rubber band on the front of it, like I did in the picture. Pull it slightly to the side and tape it all over. I suggest moving it howard the side that you are dominant with: Righties pull the rubber band slightly to the right, lefties to the left. Tip: hold the bow a little bit sideways when shooting. Just a LITTLE bit sideways, not a lot. And now you are done! I am not responsible for any damage or injuries caused by this, as I am only the creator of this. Have fun! :D

    How do you fire it

    Sorry I'm late but you fire it by holding the bow sideways a tiny bit, put the hornet on the band, and shoot. Hope I helped :). I'll post a picture of me using it when I can.
