How to Make: a Paper Airplane

About: I come in peace. I'm interested in all things electronic. I like to collect coins and build stuff. I don't live in California so I've never been to Squid Labs. I'm under 18 and I am the only one in my grade...

I couldn't find this paper airplane on here yet, so I decided to add it. This paper airplane is one my my favorites to make because I love that you don't need scissors or tape to make it.

It takes very little time to make and it flies quite nicely.

Step 1: Materials

All you really need to make this airplane is a piece of 8.5" x 11" paper. (Printer paper)

Options : You could use a piece of tape to keep the wings together in the end, but it's not neccesary.

Step 2: Folds

First, you will need to fold it in half. (the long way)

Step 3: Folding the Flaps

Now fold the top corners towards the fold you just made. (the fold down the paper.)

Then fold it down. (the tip will be about 1" from the bottom of the paper.)

Step 4: The Corners

Now for this step you really have to get it right or else the plane will come out bad.

Now fold down the top corners of the paper so the meet in the middle.

Step 5: Triangle

Now fold the little triangle over the flaps.

Step 6: Fold Over

Now fold the paper over in half.

Step 7: 1st Wing

Now, take the side and fold it so it matches up with the left side (where the half of the little triangle is)

Step 8: 2nd Wing

Now do the same to the other side.

Step 9: Done!

Now open it up and you're done!!! Have fun flying!!!!

    I like it, but when I tried to throw it just fell and hit the ground. Maybe it's my throwing skills!!!
