      Create your Own Redneck Switchblade Gag Gift Idea

      You'll Need:

      • 2 wide popsicle sticks
      • 1 rubber band
      • 1 wooden spring-type clothes pin
      • Elmer's glue


      Glue the clothes pin on one popsicle stick, with the handle side of the pin closest to the rounded tip of the popsicle stick.

      Attach the 2nd stick to the opposite end of 1st, using the rubber band. The rubber band should be in the middle of the entire piece, holding the 2 sticks fairly tight. (notches can be used to keep the rubber band in place).

      Twist the far end of the 2nd stick clockwise, so you can clasp it with the clothes pin.

      Now, if you pinch the clothes pin open, the 2nd stick will fly open, just like a switchblade (The stick that pops out can be cut to look more like a blade).
