So you want to make a loud noise with a piece of paper? My name's Robert Segundo, and today, I'm going to teach you how to make a paper snapper. What we've got here is a regular piece of paper here. What we're going to do is we're going to take it, we're going to fold...fold it down just a little bit here. You can make this a little bigger if you want to, but I like to make them thin so I can get that good grip on it. Now, what you're going to do is take it, grab it and fold it in half like so and then crease it. This is the part you're going to hold here, so what you're going to do is you're just going to take this piece like so. I'm just going to pull it in like so until where you got... Let's see if I can get this a little bit more... There we go. We want a little bit of a point to stick out here, but you don't want to put your fingers where you're actually holding that point down because that point's got to move. So what you've got here is you've got two barrels here that's going to catch that air as you slam down on it. Let's give it a try here and see what we've got. Ooh, it's pretty loud. Kind of fired too early. Let's try that one more time. Ooh! Sweet. So play around with it, have fun, and enjoy.
