The Tree & Leaf Paper Airplane

Dusty GilpinComment

I've been making paper airplanes for over a quarter century. Most kids grew up and placed aside their origami flyers, I however, continued making paper airplanes into my current 'adult' life and have no plans on retiring this tradition any time soon.

A plain piece of 8.5x11 can be found just about anywhere and has endless entertainment possibilities. Once it's been drawn all over, it's time for it to get folded into it's second life as an airplane.

I'm sure there are other variations of this airplane out there, but this version is our house special. It's a fantastic flyer in distance and aerobatics. I genuinely think this is the most entertaining paper airplane, and I want to share my fun with you. We illustrated these instructions (and probably spent too long doing so) for you to give it a build and share with your friends.

Be happy, have fun!!

If you fold it up, go out and take a video of you throwing it! Hashtag, or '@' us on any of the big social media sites: @TreeAndLeaf

Here's an old video of me tossing the plane. Young at heart!

Straight out that way. 100% recycled paper, at least 100 yards.
