First of all Happy Mother's Day to all of you mommies out there, including my own. Love you mom! I hope everyone has a great day :) ..
This is another craft I've done for Colten's Birthday party. I am using these to hang on either side of his banner, which I will do a post on as well :). I may also make a few more just for decoration. They are so fun! I hope you enjoy this tutorial, if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. I searched and searched for a tutorial on a soda can bi-plane and couldn't find one anywhere but then I found a template & was so happy because it made it much easier on me then having to free hand everything.
You will find your template here
Print out your template & then cut out all of the pieces. You will then want to cut your cans open, if you have a handy man around the house I"m sure he can do this quickly for you. Thankfully I had my dad since he's here visiting and my husband is away for work. If you don't though you will want to carefully make a slit in the top and bottom and cut them off so you have a sheet of your aluminum. Then trace your pattern onto all of your can's it took slightly less then 6 cans to make an airplane, we got 2 with very little left over out of a 12 pack. It is fairly self explanatory as to how to put the plain together just takes some folding and hot glue. But I've included pictures of the process hopefully this helps, but like I said if you have questions just ask :).
I have also made candy airplanes for his party if you'd like to see those click here
