Materials Needed:
1 sheet 8.5 x 11 Copy Paper

Optional Materials:
A Credit Card for creasing paper.

Step 1:

2. Unfold and repeat with top left corner to right side of page.

3. Unfold and then fold the top of the page directly down so the two top corners touch the intersection between the diagonal crease and the side of the page (as indicated in the picture).

2. Push the two edges of the fold toward the center as shown in picture A.

Note: Make sure to press all creases tightly!

Step 3:

Fold right flange up toward point at top. Repeat with left flange.

Step 4:

Fold newly created bottom left and bottom right sides toward center as shown in picture A. Crease edges to look like picture B.

Step 5:

Fold the tip toward bottom side of glider just enough to meet tops of two flanges.

Step 6:

Tuck top of both flanges into slot of folded tip as shown in the picture A.

Step 7:
