Thought you could come to The Office website and just sit there and stare at your screen? It's time to get creative with our fantastic office paper planes!

We've created a truck load of templates for you to print out, fold up and throw at your work shy colleagues. Pick from David, Dawn, Gareth, Tim or Keith. Each lovingly made paper jet has a space for you to write a little message to your chosen target. If you're a novice paper folder then easy to follow pictorial instructions are below. A 5 year old could do it.

Your templates are on the right-hand side and require Adobe Acrobat. Once you've donwloaded your planes just follow the instructions below
