It doesn't require any engineering or anything like that to create a basic paper airplane. But why go basic when you can have something really incredible?
What You'll Need
Black piece of paper
Black pipe cleaner
Step 1: How to Make It
Fold the paper in half longwise.
Note: white paper is being used because it's easier to see. Also, the folds to make are marked with a dotted line on each step.
Open the paper and then fold the two top corners down.
Fold down the triangle you just made with those two corners.
Place a dot one inch above the point of the triangle you just folded. Fold each corner into meet that dot.
Fold the point over those folds you just made to the dot.
Turn the plane over and fold it in half.
Fold each side down to create wings. The nose of this plane does not come to a point, so leave 1/4 inch at the front before you fold.
With a hole punch, create two holes at the tip of the airplane.
Using a pipe cleaner thread though the back hole and then criss-cross through the front hole and mold ends to look like the Incredibles plane nose.
It's all ready, now take it for a spin.
