## Step 1:

Choose the top right corner and fold the paper into a diagonal, making the paper into a triangle with some room at the bottom

## Step 2:

Make the diagonal crease, then unfold it.

## Step 3:

Choose the top left corner and fold it then unfold it. (Repeat like step 1 just using the top left corner)

## Step 4:

**Flip the paper over.** The should be a visible big crease X on the paper.

## Step 5:

Now fold the paper over so that the top lines up precisely with the bottom of the big crease X.

## Step 6:

**Flip the paper over**

## Step 7:

Now press the middle of the crease X until the side of the paper “jump” up.

## Step 8:

Pull the top of the paper forward. the side should be folding inwards.

*It should end up like a house.

Bring the bottom right corner of the triangle over to the bottom left corner and crease it.

Now fold in the new bottom right corner so that there is a crease running from the top of the triangle to the lower right triangle.

## Step 11:

**Flip over**. Lift only the top flap of the paper and fold it over to the left side so it lines up with the bottom edges of the paper.

## Step 16:

Fold the wing at an angle where the nose (front) of the plane is about 2 times smaller than the butt (back) of the plane.
