Introduction: Paper Bat

Hello. This is an instructable on how to make a paper bat.

Step 1: Paper

Ok. You need a piece of paper. Nothing else.

Step 2: Folding

Now fold it how it is shown.

Step 3: Folding (again)

Now fold how it is now.

Step 4: The Hard Part

Now this maybe could be the hard part. Just follow the steps and you'll get it.

Step 5: Fold Up

There's two paper on the bottom part: top and bottom paper. Fold the top paper to the top of the WHOLE paper.

Step 6: Harder Part

Ok this may be harder. The pencil mark is just a mark (of course) to show you where to fold.

When you get to the last part of this step, fold the two points up.

Step 7: Fold Back

Fold the top part back up to pointy thingies.

    this is the same design as the sparrow , but with the head folded different and the wings, ad he left out the tail

    I'm assuming that no would be the answer for most of the bats made in this fashion. Because it has not tail, balancing it will be a very delicate task.

    Yeah, I knew this folding already, but to make an airplane instead. You just do the same thing and before step 7, you stick the strip of paper that you had removed at first to make the sheet square (the one we have to ignore at step 2) inside the model. And this model looks nice and flies well. Well... and you also have to fold it a bit better than on these pics... it has to be at least somewhat symmetric if you want it to fly.

    well 1) i meant not with a wooden bat but a paper bat to like annoy them 2) thats what i thought this was for

    does it fly really nicely?? and far??

    Nice instructable, but you need to make it clear that you're using a square of paper (and how you made it square), plus step 4 would be easier if you turned the paper over between steps 2 and 3. Mine flew first go, though it needs a little tweaking on the wing-tips to fly straight.

    awww i thought it was a bat like baseball that you could hit people with
