Step 1: Step 1

Get your cardboard, and your box cutter and cut 2 small oval liked shapes.

Step 2: Step 2

I forgot to get a picture but after you glued the the two oval card board cut outs. Once you finish that you want to cute out a big triangle shape and four smaller rectangles and glue the two longer ends together to make a 90 degree angle.

Step 3: Step 3

Once you have it glued into a little plane take the two oval shaped wings and glue them to the long part to make a plane shape.

Step 4: Step 4

Then you want to cut a B shape into the paper. And trace another B and cut it out. To make it two butterfly wings. and glue them together to make a butterfly and then glue them onto a small dowel.

Step 5: Step 5

once you have both items glued, you need to glue the clip part to one of the ends of the dowel and clip it to the pointy part of the plane (triangle). And BAM! you have yourself a flying cardboard paper plane.
