Let the paper wet become dry.

Step 4: How to the The Paper Boat; Step Two.

Frist put the paper as the image is.
Then fold it by its half and fold as images says.

Step 5: How to the The Paper Boat; Step Three.

Now you have to fold the paper as is indicated in the image. Do the same on the other face of the paper.

Step 6: How to the The Paper Boat; Step Four.

Now you have to open the "protorype" of the boat by the center, where there's the hole.
Then fold the paper makeing a rhombus as the image.

When you had the rhombus, then you have to fold the paper as the image.

Step 9: How to Waterproof Your Paper Boat!

Well well.. You're on your final step! Congratulations :)

Now you have to light the candle and make the liquid wax fall on the paper boat, you have to extend the wax with your finger (the wax its so hot so wait 2 seconds).
Waterproof all sites of your paper boat with wax. Don't put a lot of wax because if you do it, the paper boat will be too much heavy and it will end wrecked anyway.
