How to Make a Paper Gun

Save

Most little boys will find almost anything and make a gun out of it. If you do not have a toy gun to play with, you can make your own with just two pieces of paper. Read on to learn how to make a paper gun.

  • Fold a letter-size piece of paper in half lengthwise.

  • Refold the piece of paper again lengthwise. Then fold it one more time lengthwise. You should now have folded the paper three times.

  • Repeat Steps 1 and 2 with another piece of paper by folding it in half lengthwise three times. You will now have two of these folded pieces of paper.

  • Take one of the folded pieces of paper and fold it in half the other way across the width. This will form the barrel of the gun.

  • Use the other folded piece of paper and fold it on one end upward at a 90-degree angle and at the other end at a 90-degree angle. Leave 4 inches in the center of the piece of paper.

  • Fold both of the 90-degree ends on the piece of paper so they are even and aligned.

  • Slide the barrel piece of paper around both of the 90-degree angles. It should go into the pocket that has been formed by the 90-degree angle folds.

  • Pull it back and slide it forward to use the paper gun.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can make this paper gun with notebook paper as well. Just rip out the paper and tear off the extra pieces on the edges if ripped out of a spiral notebook.
