Project Corner How-To:  3-D Paper Airplane Art

1.       Select colored cardstock in four colors.

4.       Make an array of varying sizes and colors.

5.       Tack on the wall with standard office push pins.   Mount with the underside of the plane showing.

Laura’s tips:

  • Mount with push pins that match the paper so they are somewhat camouflaged.
  • Use the same folding pattern for each plane.
  • Be patient and persistent when folding cardstock.  Consider using a bone folder or some other tool to press the folds.
  • Arrange your planes as a fleet, all headed in one direction.
  • Mount inside an imaginary border or shape.  This will give a cohesive feeling and best aesthetic.
