Paper-Airplane Cards


Send an airmail card to your dad on Father's Day. We've given you two patterns to use -- one traditional, the other a little more high-tech.






  1. Step 1

    Choose a lightweight paper; a map of his favorite city or hiking trail are good options, or pick a colored paper and inscribe a message on the wings. Your message can be a simple greeting or a much-appreciated coupon for a couple of hours of yard work. Fold the paper first, so you'll know where to write.

    We are taking my husband to an airshow for Father's day, so we printed out a map and directions and folded them into a plane. We used google maps and in the notes area we typed in our father's day message.

    It worked with a 8.5x11 piece of paper for me. Though, either dimensions or ratios would be nice.

    Your paper airplane card template looks like fun, but it does not specify size of paper to begin with. Thanks.
