Mini Ping Pong Altoid Game

Introduction: Mini Ping Pong Altoid Game

I made these mini games entirely out of paper to begin with, and it worked out great. Now everything but clay and wood is made of paper. The net specifically.

It is really fun to make and play. Easy and cheap. And it is very durable as well
