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.)
