Over a couple of hours for the past few weekends, I’ve been working on a cardboard airplane for my nephew’s birthday pictures. The weather finally let up today, and I managed to get the “cotter” together and ready for some pictures (he calls planes and helicopters “cotters,” hence the painted name near the nose of the plane).
I scoured the internet for some basic instructions for a cardboard airplane that would be light and easy enough for my nephew to wear freely. It was pretty difficult, but when I FINALLY found some on mycraftyspot.com, I was thrilled! Whew! Other websites either had crazy designs, hard-to-follow instructions, or no instructions at all (FYI: the post was written by the awesome crafter who runs twobobbinslater.com, so I owe her the big thank you).
Last weekend, I decorated it in my nephew’s favorite colors, with a few supplies from Home Depot and Michael’s. From what I can tell, it seems like a minor hit.
