Mini Airplanes Tutorial

By Jcchris
Hello peeps!! I am back to share with you a Doodlebug tutorial. 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!
PhotobucketBefore 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. 
PhotobucketStep 2: I cut & pasted the following papers: 'clip art', 'geared up', 'anyway' onto the 'jam session' paper (background). 
PhotobucketStep 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: 
PhotobucketFirst I cut a square 3"x3". 
PhotobucketFold in half.
PhotobucketOpen up and fold the upper edges down to the centerline.
PhotobucketTurn it around/to the back and fold half again. Make it flat.
PhotobucketFold the top all the way to the bottom line. You should have a "pointy tip" at the front.
PhotobucketIt should look like this. 
PhotobucketThen fold the bottom edge up to the centerline. Fold the other wing in a symmetrical fashion.
PhotobucketCut the airplane into half. 
PhotobucketTa daa.. this is what you will get._____________________________________
PhotobucketStep 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.
PhotobucketI hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and thank you for coming by!
