next, fit the rubberband through the hole. when its almostall the way in, put in the staple. pul the rubberband thightly.
Step 3: The Ring of Metal! ( Otherwise Know As - the Washer! )
this is the final step. tie the washer onto the rubberband. this may be a little trick heres how to do it:
1. put it through the middle of the washer
2. tie the knot
Step 4: How to Use It...
there is one way to use it. actually, there is two. you can only have two if you have a metal peice around the top.
1. pull the rubberband backand out. release it. when the washer hits the bottom, BANG!
2. pull the rubberband out enough to be at level with the metal. pull it left to right, or up to down. it will hit the metal, making sound.
there is many ways to make noise:
put it upside down. shake it.
rub washer on metal
