Step 1: Materials
all you need for this is a piece of paper.
Step 2: Fist Fold.
for the first fold, just grab the right corner and fold it to the side and then unfold. Easy, eh?
Step 3: Second Fold
repeat step 2 on the other side so you get an "X" on your paper
Step 4: Third and Fourth Fold
flip the paper over and fold in half. unfold. then flip it over again. press the center of the creased X until the sides "pop" up and fold the top down to make a triangle. use the pictures as a guide.
Step 5: Fifth and Sixth Fold
grab the top layer of the triangle and fold it to the top. repeat with other side
Step 6: Seventh and Eigth Fold
next, grab the edge of one of the triangles and fold into the center. repeat with other side. then, fold the top down (all layers)
Step 7: Hard Part
next, hold down the tip, pull out the left flap, and "tuck" it into the tip. flatten.
Step 8: Wings
to make the wings, fold the sides to the center like in the picture. then fold the parts touching back to the outside. adjust to look like the last picture.
Step 9: Throwing
to throw, hold the back (the side without the triangle) with a full hand (first pic) pull back, and let go (second pic). it might take some practice, but it is well worth it.
