Paper Airplane Shadowbox

A favorite pastime this summer for my girls and I was making paper airplanes! We had so much fun, especially on those days that were rainy, or just too hot to venture out.

One of the things that struck me the most with the airplanes was the vast variety of shapes they presented, and the various flight patterns that resulted. I decided to miniaturize some and display for further study. 🙂


plus a book or two with paper airplane folding instructions…we used this one for most of the airplanes






Now display on a wall or shelf…


This is one of those pieces that would go well in a nursery or small child’s room. Just make sure to use thin paper for the airplanes, as they tend to get quite thick with all of the folds. Origami paper would work very well. Our book came with thin colored paper, which is what I used here.
