I’ve never been able to figure out how to craft paper airplanes that don’t crash and burn in under three seconds. I’ve given up. If you haven’t, check out Guinness record holder Ken Blackburn’s high-flying jets and exclusive patterns. (His Top Gun designs stay aloft for almost 30 seconds!) I’m happy sticking with quirky designs inspired by the papery little flyers. No, you can’t write a secret love note on them, but they are pretty dang cute and won’t (accidentally) get thrown in the trash.

    You always see jumbo jets all over little boys' rooms, but paper airplanes? That's such a cute and whimsical idea! Plus, when you think of paper airplanes, don't you think of mischievous little boys?

    I think this idea for a project to entertain kids at a party would be fun, Invites, decorations, cupcake toppers, etc. THE PARTY THEME PAPER AIRPLANES could be done on a small budget. Got lots of ideas from this…Thanks….
