Tuesday Tutorial: Mini Paper Airplanes by Jessy

Hi Doodlebug peeps!! It's Jessy Christopher here! For today's tutorial, I have created a layout using the new collection from Doodlebug called "Boys Only". I love the vibrant colors and the cute boys elements on the papers and stickers. I wanted to make this layout really fun by including stars and paper airplanes! 

When I was young, I was taught to fold paper airplanes and play with my friends in school and with my neighborhood friends as well. It definitely brought back a lot of memories. Fear not... if you are not sure how to fold a paper airplane. I have created a tutorial just for you!

Before we move on to the paper airplane, let's work with the base of the layout. 

Step 1: I used the 'superstar paper' and punched stars on it.

Step 2: I cut & pasted the following papers: 'clip art', 'geared up', 'anyway' onto the 'jam session' paper (background).

Step 3: I added the 'superstar' paper and also added the 'banner card stock sticker'.  Of course with that cute little photo too :)

Step 4: Here is a tutorial on folding a paper airplane: 

Photobucket
First I cut a square 3"x3". 

Photobucket
Fold in half.

Photobucket
Open up and fold the upper edges down to the centerline.

Photobucket
Turn it around/to the back and fold half again. Make it flat.

Photobucket
Fold the top all the way to the bottom line. You should have a "pointy tip" at the front.

Photobucket
It should look like this. 

Photobucket
Then fold the bottom edge up to the centerline. Fold the other wing in a symmetrical fashion.

Photobucket
Cut the airplane into half. 

Photobucket
Ta daa.. this is what you will get.

Step 5: Here's the completed layout! To add fun to the layout use Doodlebug twine to create the flying trail. I have also created a frame all around the 'superstar' paper by using lil stripes. Also added a lil more of the stickers & brads.

I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and thank you for coming by! 

Xoxo Jessy
