Step 1: Start Off !

Start off with an usable A4 paper of any colour of your choice.

Step 2: Fold the Paper in Half and Then Unfold

Start with folding the paper in half lengthwise and then unfold.This center crease is just a guide for future folds.

Step 3: Fold the Top Corners

Fold the top corners so they meet at the center crease

Step 4: Fold the Triangular Top Down

Fold the top part down so that it looks like an envelope.

Remember to leave a half inch or so at the bottom

Step 5: Fold the Top Corners Into the Middle

Fold the top corners in so they meet at the middle. There should be a small triangle tail hanging out beneath these folds.

Step 6: Fold the "hanging Out Triangle" Up

Fold that small triangle up to hold those previous folds in place.

Step 7: Fold the Paper in Half

Fold in half, but make you sure you fold it outwards on itself, not inwards. Therefore you will be able to see the previous triangular fold at the bottom edge.

Step 8: Wings Folding !

Fold the wing down so its edge meets the bottom edge of the airplane. Repeat on the other side.

Step 9: Launch Your Creation !

This is what it should look like! Triangular wings with pointed head for stabilizing !
