Step 2: Forming the ship
3. Staple all along the side, leaving only the top of your ship open.

2. Fold down the top until it reaches the bottom of the ship. So in half. This will help your ship stand up on it's own.
3. Crease it real good.
4. Add stickers and a flag taped or glued onto a straw. You could also use popscile sticks, but the bendy part of the straw hold the flag nicely and we had them on hand.
