What better way to send an interdepartmental memo than in paper airplane form? I guess there's email, but that's boring!

Step 1: Video Tutorial
Step 2: Printing and Cutting
Print the template for the memo on regular paper. I tried it on card stock but it was difficult to fold and was too heavy to fly.
Use a ruler and x-acto knife to trim off all the white space around it.
At this point you can use a green pen or marker to write a note on the memo if you'd like.
Step 3: Folding
Next we need to fold it into a paper airplane. The exact way to fold it would be very difficult to explain here, so check out the photos and.or video tutorial for reference.
Step 4: Adding the Seal
Print the template for the seals on sticker paper and use your scissors to cut one out. Cut around the zig-zag line that circles the main design of the seal. Now just stick it to the top of your memo as shown in the photo.
Alternatively you could print these on regular paper and use a glue stick to attach it to your memo.
Step 5: Applying the Gold Foil
Now use a deco foil adhesive pen and color the first inch of the tip of the memo. Apply your gold leaf to it and use a soft paint brush to brush away the excess gold leaf.
Step 6: You're Finished!
