AstroBrights Paper Airplanes!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of
Astrobrights Papers by Neenah Paper for SocialSpark.
 All opinions are 100% mine.
 I love back to school time--not to send my kids off since we homeschool, 
but because I love school supplies!
I love Brilliant! AstroBright Paper!
We always have reams of AstroBright paper on hand for every project.

There are tons of colors...
For me, I love the wide range of blues...since that's my favorite color!
My kids ask me to make paper airplanes for them all the time!
Somehow, paper airplanes say "Back to School" to me...
I remember in 4th grade having a paper airplane flying contest.
We had to come to school with our plane already made.
I had NO CLUE how to fold a plane!  My brother helped
 teach me how to make this flyer...it's really simple!
Pin It
Here we go!

 Here's the tutorial!  And yes, brightly colored paper is a MUST!  :)

And then, if you are like us...you will spend a bunch of time decorating!
I used a homemade chevron stamp...markers rule too!
 Unfolded my plane, and stamped only on the top wing...
 like so...
 And the other...
 There's the underside...oh well.
 Ready, Set, Fly!
 This is the paper that the kids can't get enough of!  We use it daily!
It's also the paper we used to make giant paper flower decorations for a Princess Party!

Thank you for your wonderful tutorial. It was very easy to follow. My three and a half-year-old was delighted to see his new paper aeroplane flying from our dining room into his bedroom after hitting the ceiling)!

Hello, I love the tutorial! Just wondering what size paper and quality/weight did you use? Thank you!

Thank you for that awesome easy to follow tutorial! It's the first time I've ever been able to make a paper aeroplane that flew a good distance!!
