How To Make A Paper Popper

    Paper poppers are great for scaring and pranking your friends and siblings. When you fold a piece of paper correctly, you can make air pockets, creating a loud pop sound when you press the paper with the correct method. Just a piece of paper and some strength in your wrist to get started, and you’ll soon own a popper all for yourself!

    Step 1:

    Start by laying out a piece of paper. You do not want to make a stiff off the paper because otherwise, it will not work.

    Step 2:

    Then fold it half and then fold it in half.

    Step 3:

    Then, fold all the corners into the line you created in the earlier step. After that, fold it in half over the line.

    Step 4:

    It is then time to fold it into two and then fold it in half again.

    Step 5:

    After that, fold the corners on this line.

    Step 6:

    Fold it over so that it makes an arc. Please keep it in the position shown in the photo below, then whip your arms upwards. The arm should make a loud thud. When it is broken and out, it tends to get louder. Take your time and have fun.


    • Keep your wrist downwards when throwing your popper for more volume.
    • Try using different papers like coloured construction paper. Paper with diverse textures to test if you make more sounds.
    • You can embellish your popper to make it stand out and individual.
