This is an instructable for anyone who has nothing to do. Well now they will because they will learn how to make paper footballs. You can play it by yourself or see if you can flick it farther than your friend.
Step 1: Getting Started
Start with a standard piece of paper (first picture), cut it in half (second picture), and take one of the halves (third picture).
Step 2: Starting to Take Shape
Now, fold your half of a piece of paper in half (first picture). After that, take one of the corners and fold it over until it's a right triangle (second picture). Take the tip of the triangle and fold it down (third picture). Take the obtuse (widest) angle of the triangle and fold that down (fourth picture).
Step 3: Finished!
Now fold the two edges of the still square piece of paper (first picture). Fold the part, that I just talked about, into a spot where there is an opening (second picture). Sorry that the third picture is sideways. The video will show you how to flick it. Good job!
