How to Make a Paper Popper

by Laurel Smith
How to make a Paper Popper  

Easy and Loud! 

Use it to annoy your big brother!

This is a fun origami toy that is easy to make and fun to play.  Start with a regular sheet of printer paper.  

Steps to make a paper popper:

Step 1.  Start with a regular sheet of printer paper. Turn it sidewasy to the landscape view.

2. Fold the paper in half the long way.  Begin your crease in the center of the fold to help keep your edges straight.

3. Unfold it so that you have a crease marking the center of the paper.

4. Fold the top edge down to the center crease.

5.  Fold the top edge down to the center crease again. And one more time to create a nice thick flap along the top edge.

6.  Fold the flap down one more time along the center crease that already exists.

7.  Mark each end of the folded flap with a circle using a pencil. Be sure to mark both ends. This mark is what you will use to see where to hold your popper when you use it.

8. Flip it over and fold the whole thing in half the long way.

9. Now you have your paper popper ready to use!

To load your paper popper, turn it as shown in the photo, with the marks to the bottom left.  Hold the right end, and let the left end open up slightly.  Push the flap end until it is across the right side. Grap the marks with your thumbs, and make sure the cente part can slide freely. Now raise your arm up and pull down quickly for a nice loud POP!  

Please watch the paper popper video to see how to use it and make it pop, and subscribe to my youtube channel!  Have fun, but don't get in trouble!
