Use mini craft sticks and antique paper to create your own flying machine! This project also has an instructional video available!


  • Step 1
    Using Creativity Street mini craft sticks, design and construct a base for your flying machine. Mini craft sticks can be easily cut with scissors and glued with any white glue. Make sure you leave a space on the sides wide enough to glue on wings and a space to glue on the tail.
  • Step 2
    Fold a piece of Roylco antique paper in half. Draw half of a tail design on the fold and one wing (not on the fold). Cut out the pieces.
  • Step 3
    On the back side of the wings and tail, draw lines where the wooden reinforcements will go for added stability.
  • Step 4
    Cut mini craft sticks to the lengths drawn and glue them to the paper.
  • Step 5
    Glue the wings and tail to the base structure.
