Step 1: Make the Paper Airplane

To make this paper airplane, it's quite simple. First, you want to fold the paper down the middle as shown above. Then you want to fold two of the corners in and fold it down the middle again as pictured above. Next, you'll want to fold the corners down twice each as shown above.

Step 2: Make a Slit in the Airplane

For this step all you have to do is make a slit in the middle of the plane towards the top. This is where the paper clip will go.

Step 3: Add Paper Clip

For this step you want to start by bending one of the ends of the paper clip out as it is shown above. Next, you'll want to put the paper clip in through the slit that you made in the last step and tape it in place.

Step 4: Tape the Plane

Lastly, you want to tape the plane together as shown above to keep the plane together.
