This was originially for the Toss It! Speed challenge, which has ended. So this effects the contest in no way.
Recently in 2008,
scientists I (GorillazMiko) have discovered that it is possible to use tin foil (aluminum) to make paper airplanes, and it is very easy. Many other people may have known this, but it has not been posted onto Instructables, so yeah, there we have it. There was also a method discovered on how to flatten it out, which I found out with my friend. People may use this method, but I'm not sure. It's not on Instructables, is it? The paper airplanes you design with the aluminum foil could be either very light (a couple of grams), or either kind of heavy, depends on the way you make it.
This Instructable shows you how to flatten out a piece of tin foil paper, cutting it, folding, and making it easy to make your own paper airplane.
So are you ready to fold some planes?
You bet I am.
Let's get to work soldiers.
Please ignore the pictures with the Toss It! Paper. Well, don't ignore it. You need it. It's just that the contest is over, and this was made during that time. Sorry.
Step 1: Items.
The items are extremely easy to get.
- A normal US letter size piece of paper. A4 would work.
- Some aluminum paper tin foil paper whatever. Make sure it is BIGGER than the normal paper, unless you have a perfect cutter or something.
- Book, or flat surface. Not too strong. A hardcover book (not too thick) works great.
- X-Acto knife. (Optional)
