Friday, May 26th is not just one of the busiest travel days of the year or the kick off to Memorial Day Weekend - it's also Paper Airplane Day!

I'm not very good at this craft, so I thought I would figure out how to make the perfect paper airplane. As I did my very serious research, I found these giant paper airplanes from the blog - Fireflies and Mud Pies. What a great way to make this craft bigger and better for our weekly Nailed It Or Failed It segment! Because let's be honest - watching Jon, Taylor, and I fold some regular-sized construction paper for five minutes would be BORING.
