How to Make a Paper Dart

THIS WAS AN ORIGINAL IDEA Make a fold as shown, it doesn't matter what it looks like. (Note: any size paper is ok, it is recommended that you use 1/4 of regular paper or more so that the dart isn't too light)

    Good work for a first instructable. :)

    You may try placing the last image that features the finished airplane on the intro step so that it will display as the thumbnail. This will give viewers a better idea of what they are making before they click, and in general it increases the project's appeal.
