Paper Flapper

This Instructable will show you how to make a Paper Flapper. I sort of made this project when I was holding a strip of paper and then just folded it. It made that "V" shape and I thought that this could be my first Instructable ever! It's easy and if your looking for something quick to make, this the Instructable for you.

Step 1: Gather Materials

Gather the materials:

1. One piece of paper

2. A pencil

3. A ruler

4. Paper cutter

5. Rubber Cement (or any kind of glue)

6. Tape

Step 2: Measure

Take you piece of paper and ruler and measure in two inches into the paper. Draw a little dash there.

Step 3: Cutting

Using your paper cutter, cut where you drew that dash upon the paper so that you know have a two inch wide strip of paper.

Step 4: 1st Fold

Now that you have the strip of paper fold the strip of paper in half hamburger style.

Step 5: 2nd Fold

Fold the strip of paper in half again.

Step 6: Applying the Glue

Unfold it so that you see four quadrants. Take your glue and apply it to the first two or second two quadrants.

Step 7: Pressing Down

Fold the strip back in half and press down firmly to make them stick.

Step 8: Tape

Fold it back into the "V" shape and use either double sided tape or take a regular piece of tape and roll it into a circle so it is sticky on all sides and apply it to one of the outsides.

Step 9: More Tape

Flip it over and apply tape to the other outside. You're finished!
