On the master you will find this piece of writing here:
I was a little confused until I figured out that the outside folds were hills, and the inside folds are valleys. I know about hills and valleys, I ...
I cut out the top of the billows for the launcher. I placed the ruler along the lone line that indicated that the fold was a valley, then, I folded...
Then I cut out the bottom of the billows for the launcher. I placed the ruler along the lines that indicated that the folds were valleys,
and then I folded them to be valleys.
Next I cut the billows out. This next part wasn’t so easy. Part of each line was hill folds while the rest of the same line, are valley folds, and...
So I carefully, creased the lines on front or back as needed to be able to create the right hills and valleys.
The best way to make the next step happen is to fold in the valleys and hills on each end, I used paper clips to hold the folds together. Since the...
Next I glued where it says “glue this side to the top of the base plate” to the billows base, using the paint brush to spread a goodly amount of glu...
I then used paper clips to hold the parts together while they dried.
Next, I cut out the launch tube.
I rolled the tube around the handle of the craft knife to that is was inclined to be round and then I used tape to make the tube.

Next I folded the valley fold on the bottom up and over the white triangles that were all together on each end of the billows.
Then I glued down the rest of the top to the bottom part. More paper clips were put in use. Set it aside to let it dry.
Next I cut out the rocket cap, and then I put some glue on the white area.
Then I over lapped the black area so that no white shows and paper clip them together until dry.
I then cut out the rocket, even the little white triangles.
I rolled the tube around the handle of the craft knife to that is was inclined to be round and then I used tape to make the tube. This tube need to...
Cut out the fins. They come in sets of two pieces per fin.
Fold the valleys and glue the main parts together.
Glue the tabs of the fins to the rocket. The white area tells you where to glue. This time the little triangles were folded into hills. I put glu...
Once everything is dry, I blew some air into the launch tube. There was a leak and I used some tape to seal it off. Next I pulled the billows out ...
Count from 3 to 1 back ward… 3..2..1.. and pushed down on the billows making the rocket blasted off. That was pretty far considering the first...
