    That is pretty neat. You could probably make a game out of this somehow. Also, you say "short side facing forward" but the pictures show the long side forward. Unless I read it wrong. As an added tip, have the rubber band about a centimetre or so from the corner of the card. I did it too close to the corner the first time and it backfired.
