Make a crease down the middle, then fold the top left and right corners over the crease.

Fold it in half.

Trim about an inch off of the back of the plane. Its just for weighting it right.

Fold the wings down to the bottom of the plane, as shown in the picture.

Step 7: Step 7

Add a piece of tape, (any kind,) to the top to hold it together.

Step 8: Final Step

Trim the wings at the crease we made earlier, and, voila! You have a paper airplane! This is my first instructables project, so expect more coming soon!
