THE “SECRET” PAPER DOVE

Perhaps it can be called the first and most accessible for a child flying a model made with their own hands. And really to make a paper dove will not require any tool or special materials — just take the conventional typewritten sheet and some times it is to bend. Here’s how the baby should be show at least once: the second time he will easily repeat these simple steps for himself. When the child firmly mastered the original version — he wants the dove to fly better. And then let him in on a little secret.
So, let’s begin: top right corner of the typewritten sheet (1) bend to the contact with the side edge of the paper (2) and carefully iron finger fold line. Then spread the sheet and do the same thing with a different top angle (3). Now grasp with both hands side edge of the sheet and pull them towards each other the sheet will be in figure 4, which is also thoroughly smooth.
The resulting new upper corner alternately fold both former top angle (5) — get square (6), whose left and right corners bend up to contact with the middle line (7). Straighten them back one by one and again bend, but down again to contact with the midline (8), each time carefully paving (pressed) bends. Now both of these angle two fingers bend in the middle will get kind of horns (9). Fold them under the sheet (10) — horns will turn into a beak (11) and the dove is ready. Slightly rotten his boat along the line of the beak — and you can put: dove in flight would resemble this. That’s just… tailless.

And without a tail the bird to fly hard. And then it will open the promised secret. Note the dotted line passing in the middle of the wings on the figure 11: bend it “wings” of the dove and cut off the formed strip. Of it and make a tail (12). On one end fold the corners to meet one another, and the entire strip to bend along. Billet tail ready, it remains to combine it with a dove. To straighten, returning to figure 10, and insert the strip with the pointy end around until it stops, then bend the figure back — get a pigeon with a tail (13).
However, this is not the whole secret. Note the dotted lines on the wings of a dove (13). The last bend on them to make two upward plate washer wing (14).
 
Now the flight of the dove will be smooth, beautiful and sustainable, delivering the child a lot of joy.
