Making a paper bullet takes a few simple folding techniques. (Jupiterimages/Goodshoot/Getty Images)

With origami, the art of paper folding, you don't need tape to create interesting shapes from paper. An origami sniper bullet can be made with just a few basic folds. You can use origami paper for this craft, but construction or printer paper also works well. For a more realistic-looking sniper bullet, use gun metal grey paper.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

Things you need

  • 3 pieces of paper
  • Ruler
  • Scissors

  1. 1

    Cut one paper into a 6-by-6-inch square.

  2. 2

    Fold the square in half. You should have a long rectangle.

  3. 3

    Put one end of the rectangle into the fold of the other end of the rectangle. This creates a tube.

  4. 4

    Cut another piece of paper into a circle 2 inches in diameter.

  5. 5

    Roll the circle into a cone and stuff it inside the tube so just the point sticks out. The tube holds the cone so it doesn't unravel.

  6. 6

    Cut three 1/2-inch gashes on the bottom of the bullet.

  7. 7

    Fold the cuts in so they create a flat bottom for your bullet.

  8. 8

    Fold the last piece of paper into a tube and hold it in one hand.

  9. 9

    Place your paper bullet into the tube and blow into one end to "shoot" your paper sniper bullet.

Tips and warnings

  • Decorate your papers with pens or markers before you start folding to give them a bright and colourful look.
  • Even though your bullet is paper, do not shoot it at anyone's face. The point may cause eye injury.
