#Hercules2016 How to Make a Paper Boat




Introduction: #Hercules2016 How to Make a Paper Boat


A short and easy way to make a small paper boat that floats.

Step 1: Folding Paper

Fold your paper half way and fold it half way again.

Step 2: Folding Corners

Unfold it from the half way you just did and fold the corners so that they are equal to each other and also lines up on the line.

Step 3: Fold in the Bottom

Just underneath the two corners you folded, grab and fold the edges over the folded corners, the same for both sides.

Step 4: Fold Bottom Edges

Now you must fold the bottom edges to each other, and you should now have it in the form of a square. The two edges should be tucked in for both sides.

Step 5: Fold Bottom Sides

Fold the little ends of the square shape to its top, if should not be in the shape of a triangle.

Step 6: Open and Fold

Open the bottom of it and fold it to its other end, and it should have a little line through its center.

Step 7: Fold Again

This time, fold it the same way we did in step 5.

Step 8: Pull Out Sides

When you brought up the sides last time, pull the first layer of it, not all. When it is pulled out, make the sides long and smooth, and that's about it.

(NOTE: This boat can float, even when it's completely wet, but be careful because it can rip easily.)
