Quick and Simple Paper Plane

Introduction: Quick and Simple Paper Plane

Follow these instructions to quickly make a fast and cool looking paper plane... I used a normal sheet of 8 1/2 by 11 printing paper. (Maybe this is alot simpler than what I put, but I accidentally found this out just messing around with some paper...)

Step 1: Step 1

Lay the sheet down and fold one of the top corners down and unfold it, and then do the same to the other corner.

Step 2: Step 2

Next you fold down where the two creases meet, and unfold.

Step 3: Step 3

Fold the paper vertically now, and unfold it again.

Step 4: Step 4

Fold the two triangular shaped creases in, while folding down on the horizontal crease.

Step 5: Step 5

Now you simply fold along the vertical crease.

Step 6: Step 6

Fold the top flap on both sides a little more than halfway.

Step 7: Step 7

Now fold that part up about halfway (on both sides), to where it lines up with the edge of the paper.

Step 8: Step 8

Now you can tear or cut off that triangle at the top.

Step 9: Final

This is what the final thing should look like... Sorry, but I'm no artist.
