Step 1: Big Hamburger
first off get a regular piece of computer paper and put it on a flat surface.
now take the top and fold it to the bottom, or "hamburger" style.
then unfold it.
Step 2: Multiple Hamburgers
You shold then fold the top down to the middle fold like the picture shows.
do this again, and then once more to get to the third picture.
now fold this "bump" over the original middle line, so it looks like the fourth picture.
Make sure you flatten the paper with a pencil or something like it between each fold.
Step 3: Curving the Bump
Now take the "bump" and roll it over your finger. make sure you dont roll it too tight or it will turn out funny.
lightly flatten it and then do this to the other side.
you should modify the rolling until it looks something like the second picture.
Step 4: Throwing It
You dont throw this glider the way you would throw other paper airplanes. you throw this one like a football. dont throw it too hard or it will smash into the ground. it can crash multiple times and not get messed up. look for my other instructables coming soon!
