Picture of Make a Paper Copter Without Paper Clip or Tape

There are instructions for paper copters all over the Internet. I wanted to make a way to make a paper copter with using only paper as a material.

Step 1: Materials

All you really need is paper.
Optionally, if you don't want to tear the paper and you don't have paper of the right size, you can use scissors.

Step 2: Cut the Rectangle

First, cut (or tear, if you don't use scissors) a rectangle of paper.
Don't matter about the measurement, it just needs to be oblong.

Step 3: Folding#1

Fold one third of the rectangle like in the first picture.
Then, fold the other edge under the first folded edge (like in the second picture).
Then, just fold the upper triangular flap under both rectangular flaps.

Step 8: Finished!

Fold the flaps ("propeller blades") to the opposite directions and TA-DA! Your paper copter is ready to go, just drop it.
