Ultimate Paper Dart

Introduction: Ultimate Paper Dart

About: 13 years old in school and just livin life

this is the ultimate paper dart hands down. i make these every once in a while and when i do somebody gets hurt. seriously dont aim these at people's face eyes or privates (all you guys out there).

*warning* not to be taken lightly these can and will hurt

i had fun doing this and i hope to hear good comments

Step 1: What You Need

this is a very simple process all you will need is...

1 piece of paper (2 for extra hardness but 3 pieces wont allow you to bend it finish it)
ability to roll tight a piece of paper
2 hands
1 brain

Step 2: Now for the Folding

folding is the most important step. this will determine the firmness and shape of the wasp.

The first and most important fold all fold are important so measure twice fold once and sharply crease it

First fold the paper top to bottom. (hamburger style)*pic 1*

Then fold again left to right. *pic 2*

Then fold again top to bottom. *pic 3*

After this is done rotate it to the right. *pic 4*

Step 3: Now to Roll It

This is the second most important step. (read that again)

This part is crucial DO NOT FOLD ROLLING IS BETTER.

If you have gotten this far congratulations.

Now to roll it as mentioned above.

first take the littlest amount you can of paper and start rolling it. *pic 1*

continue rolling and rolling. *pic 2*

and finish rolling. *pic 3*

dont freak out if it tends to fray around the edges its ok and its easier to start with the neater edge it helps belive me.

Step 4: Folding

This is by far the easiest part unless you used 2 pieces of paper.

Now just fold it in half. Thats it.

Step 5: Priming and Firing

To prime the wasp you need to bend the edges and knock it against something. if it makes a noise its a good dart if it doesnt feel hard like the table and tear of any exess edges.

and to fire well there is another instructable on it

    Question 8 months ago on Step 5

    how did you get the rubber band to stay on your finger when there is so much excess. that makes it fall off of your finguers.

    WRONG! hornets are a inch or so in length, bumblebees are about 1/4-1/2 and inch and are really thick, wasps are long ones:2 inches or more.

    Well, saquatchman, you too are wrong, because the name is different from area to area (in reality, they don't exist in my part of the world).

    We had to have a huge assembly at my school because some kids did this. And plus this kid took a pin and started stabbing people. Bad idea. if a teacher catchs you with a rubber band, you get sent the office at my school
