Step 1: Gather Materials
All you need for this project is a regular sheet of paper. This can be notebook paper or printer paper.
Step 2: Fold the Paper in Half
fold paper in half as shown in the picture.
Step 3: Unfold the Paper
Unfold the paper then fold the top right and left corner so that they meet in the middle. See the picture
Step 4: Fold the Top Corners Again.
Now you need to fold the same corners again. The left and right diagonal edges should touch the middle of the paper.
Step 5: Fold Point Down
fold point down to the center of the bottom edge of paper.
Step 6: Flip the Paper Over
Step 7: Fold Top Corners
Fold both the right and left top corners so that the bottom of the fold is parallel to the bottom of the paper. See picture
Step 8: Fold the Middle In
Now you need to fold the middle of the paper in. While you are folding the paper lift the point up from the back side of paper. See picture above.
Step 9: Now Let's Make the Wings
First flip the paper over. Then you will fold the plane in half like the above picture.
Step 10: Folding the Wings
Fold the left wing down so that the bottom of the wing lines up with the bottom of the plane. (Repeat this on the right wing)
Then, fold each of the wings again, but only a quarter of the way down this time instead of a half.
