Free Paperang Cardstock Boomerang
This is the result of some time trying
my hand at card models instead of paper models. It seems that with card
stock it is easier to design new models but harder to write the instructions.
is my first published card stock model. So be sure to print this project
on card stock. Anywhere from 90 LB to 125 LB should work just fine.
Matte finish photo paper should also work well too. If you don't have
any of these then trace it onto something like a manila folder, poster
board or a cereal box.
I have experimented with many different
boomerang designs. Some requiring glue and some not. Some with 4 boomerang
blades and some with 3. In the end I settled on a one piece design with
If you are right handed and cut the paper
boomerang out with right handed scissors it will automatically be bent
into the correct shape. With the tips curved slightly upward towards
the printed side with the arrows. When the boomerang lays flat on a
table the ends of the blades will curve up from the surface about an
eighth of an inch or a millimeter.
Hold the boomerang vertically (up and
down) in your right hand with the printed side with the diagram facing
left. Throw it like a hatchet. Be sure to get some spin on it to make
it fly and come back to you. It will turn in flight, level out and come
back to you.
Try in different rooms with different
air volumes to see different interesting results.
Most of all Have Fun!
