Today I'm going to show you how to make a super sleek airplane. You need a rectangular piece of paper. You're going to fold it in half lengthwise. Get yourself a nice sharp crease. Just like that. And you're going to open it up and you going to keep this at your edge because you're going to be creating your point. So you fold either side. Nice strong crease. Just like that. And you're going to fold one more time. This is how you're going to get your sleekness and your strength. Bring it down. And the same thing on the other side. Oops. Bring it up to the edge and make sure you got a nice sharp point. So you're going to take and fold it in half. Now you're going to fold one more time to the point. Take the whole outside edge and bring it down to the edge of your middle crease that you started with. This is drawing paper so it's a little thick up here but it'll be a nice strong plane. Just like that, crease. Turn it over and bring it down to the edge. Have to guide it a little bit because of the thickness there. And crease. Nice thin. Bring the ends up, just like that. And if you want to be a little more styling, you can take the edges here, fold them up on either end. Give yourself little guiding fins. And there would be a cool sleek simple airplane.
