Step 1: Materials

first step is to gather your materials. you will need;
-a piece of paper (any kind)
-tape
-ring caps
-pliers

optional (makes it better of course)
-sparklers
-magnesium (wal-mart in the camping section. its for helping to start fires)
-electrical tape (better)
-a knife (for pulling out the little white things)

Step 2: Making the Shell

the first thing is to get a piece of paper, fold it for a line, and cut a small strip off. this will be rolled up and made into a tube. plug the end of it with tape, glue, doesn't really matter as long as it works.
**don't make it too big! we're making a firecracker not a grenade...**

next fold the rest of the paper in half. it will be used to collect the gunpowder from the caps.

Step 3: Empty Caps

now what you need to do is take out your pliers, caps and the folded in half paper.

take your cap ring in one hand and squeeze the caps twice each from different angles. once you have done them all you can flick the rest of the powder out onto the paper.

after emptying about 5 rings of caps you can dump it all into the paper tube.

Step 4: The Fuse.

there is many different ways you can make fuse. my personal favorite is tightly rolled paper with magnesium in it, but since nobody has bothered with that stuff (most likely) **you just wind up some tissue, and seal it with nail polish.** you could use a sparkler if you know how to properly, but if you don't, you don't. IT WILL BLOW UP IN YOU FACE.

Step 5: Be Safe

I highly suggest eye ware, and using it in a place where nothing is flammable like on the beach surrounded by sand.

don't stand too close it really hurts your hands, and it hurts your ears a lot. think about a cap gun going off beside your ear, except the cap is 30x bigger. !deafening!

and do not do this Coltin (spazzy mcgee) you are not smart enough!!!!

Didn't mention it before, but if you suck that much... you need to light it on fire somehow or its pretty much useless... unless you hit it with a hammer....
