How to Make Origami Paper Sniper Shoot Bullets Without Tape

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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