Flip paper back over and then pull the flaps from the back to the front, folding another crease.

Fold down the top half's of the two flaps.

This is the finished product. This paper airplane is a glider/dart. I think it will fly straight as an arrow for 20 feet if it is folded right. If you liked this instuctable, also check out the white lightning paper airplane, and the arrow paper airplane
