It’s Tax Day, and you need some fun. How does decorating a paper airplane with a pop culture or literary-inspired theme sound? If you just said it sounds rad, you are correct! Get out your sequins and your hot glue guns, kids. It’s time to pimp some planes.
Our partners in crime at Crown Publishing have this new book out from the world champion paper airplaner. Did you know that’s a thing? It’s totally a thing.
So how about trying your hand at it? In this giveaway, we want you to create and decorate a paper airplane inspired by literature or pop culture. Check out the awesome examples below for a few the Crown team whipped up. We’ll select finalists and put them up for a vote here on Book Riot. Two winners (one selected by Book Riot and Crown, one selected by readers’ votes) will each receive a $50 gift card to Sunglass Hut (so they can buy snazzy new aviators, obviously) and a super-rad golden airplane statue. You know you want one.
Here’s what you do:
1. Click here to download 3 free plane plans, along with the Folding Basics section from the book.
2. Search your soul for the best pop culture or literary theme, and decorate your plane accordingly.
3. Submit a photo of your plane and a short description in the form below by this Friday, April 20th at 11:59pm Eastern.
