Step 1: Materials

All you need for this is a half sheet of paper and two hands. The best part of this is (other than the bada** claws of course) is that precision doesn't matter!

Step 2:

Fold in half.

Step 3:

Fold the corners down so there is a point in the middle.

Step 4:

Fold the top, side, two corners down.

Step 5:

Repeat Step 2 on the other side.

Step 6:

Fold in half so all you have done doesn't show.

Step 7:

This is the hardest part; fold as shown above and keep the size of your finger in mind as you do this.

Step 8:

Now wrap it around itself as shown.

Step 9: All Done!

Now you have a claw! You can make 4 more for a full hand! Or 9 more for both hands! You can put claws in claws but 3 claws is the limit or else they will fall off. Now you are an official bada**. Sorry for the bad quality photos.

Can I just say, I was pretty bada** as a sixth grader lol. I cringe now, two years later.

I always made them a certain way, but they never stayed on. These are much easier to keep on.


I used to make these all the time when I was a kid. Lots of fun.
