Here's a little photo tutorial of how you can make your own whirly-bird helicopters:

You might want to add a little staple or paper clip to the folded end to hold it together. And feel free to experiment with the length of your strip and propeller span. It'll take a little trial and error to figure out the proportions that work best with your paper.
