Step 3: Push one popsicle stick through the stacked sticks so that it rests on top of the bottom stick of the stack. Step 4: Place the popsicle stick on the top of the stack Step 5: Where the notches meet, wind a rubber band around the two popsicle sticks. This should not be as tight as the rubber bands on the sides of the stack. You need to be able to provide a decent amount of force to launch your item. Optional Step: You can glue a cap to the popsicle stick for easier launching.
