I even included a spreadsheet to see at max how much money you would have to spend if you didn't have these items at home

Step 2: Design Concept

This is my design concept where I tried to draw what the finished paper airplane will look like from a top view and a side view.

Step 3: Fold a Sheet of Paper Hot Dog Style.

Step 4: Unfold Back to Original Size.

Step 5: Fold the Top Corners of the Paper to Make Two Small Right Triangles

Step 6: Fold Back in Half

Step 7: Fold the Wing Until the Bottom of the Corner Lines Up With the Bottom of the Airplane

Step 8: Repeat to the Other Side

Be careful if you don’t throw it at anyone two hard because the tip does hurt and, make sure you don’t throw it at any hard surfaces or the tip might start to crinkle. Hope you like this paper airplane and have fun.
