Picture of Pocket Rocket
This is a small paper rocket. It's pretty fun to play with and easy to make, but it spirals a lot when you throw it.

Sorry about the quality of the pictures, its hard to take pictures of something so small.

Step 1: Materials

You will need

1. Paper (I used printer paper)
2. Scotch tape
3. Scissors

Step 2: Fins

First, cut your paper into a 9.7cm x 3.3cm strip. Then fold it accordion style until you have three double thick fins, like in the picture. Tape the ends of the loose one together.

Step 3: Nose

Cut a 3.5cm x 3.5cm square and roll it into a cone. Then cut off the fringe on the bottom so that it's flat.

Step 4: Attaching the Nose

Place the nose over the fins and mark where they touch. Cut a small slit where each mark was on the cone and then insert the fins. Put a small piece of tape in the space between each fin to attach the nose.

Step 5: Finished

Your done.
To fly the rocket just hold one of the fins and throw it.

It's pretty durable so you can put it in your pocket and it won't brake.

Well actually pocket rockets are a type of pocket bikes which are basically mini motorcycles; so yes you should change the name.

I wonder what would happen if you added a match rocket.......
your point about it being hard to take pictures of something so tiny can be solved by using the macro setting on the camera. Should look like a flower on the camera. hope that helps out for the future :)
