Paperclip Bow


Introduction: Paperclip Bow

About: Hey this is MEB and OJB, (a brother and sister.) We will do a lot of instructables on crafts and drawing and such, but occasionally we might post something we drew that we aren't going to do an instruct able...

Hi this is OJB again on my 4th instructable today I'm going to teach you how to make a paperclip bow! May your arrows fly far and high!

Step 1: Materials

1. Large paperclip

2. Medium size rubberband

3. Pliers (optional but will make it a whole lot easier)

4. Tape

Step 2: Unfold

Unfold you paperclip and straighten it out then use your pliers to bend it in a "C" shape.

Step 3: Bend Back

Bend back the top and bottom part of the C

Step 4: Bow String

Now get your rubberband and hook it on to the parts of the paperclip you just made. It should look similar to the picture

Step 5: Tape

Now tape the rubberband together so it looks like the pic

Step 6: Arrow

Now you can pretty much use anything you want that's long for and arrow but I would suggest using straws.
