Today we are going to show you how to make a paper boomerang. What you will need is kind of a nice stiff cardboard, the back part of or the inside part of a cereal box. This happens to be chocolate dipped vanilla box but nice stiff cardboard, card stock. What you are going to need is this first shape and you jut kind of do a twist to it and what you are going to do is know this happens to be an inch and a half so what I did is made an inch and a half line down, flat out and then I lined up the edge and I had my ruler for a straight edge and you just hold this and keep angling this until you got your equilateral triangle and then I drew my line so I knew I had my triangle. So what I have done so far is taken and traced that on the one side on the second side and what we are going to do right now is do the third side so I am going to line it up because you need this to be in a triangle form and you need to be going in the same direction so there you have got your triangle or I should say the three boomerang pieces and now obviously what you could do is cut that out. Now in order for it to work a little better and I have drawn the little line here you need to do on each inside piece here you are going to fold that down so you are just going to give it a little bit of a bend like this, turn it and do the same thing. You could actually measure these out but I think eye balling it would work, whoops do a little better at trimming here and do a bend out there and do your little decorations on there and give it a try. Here is your boomerang. There you go. Hope you have a great day and have fun. Thanks.
