Step 2: Make the Body

Trim the piece of paper to the length of your pen or dowel as shown in Picture 1.  If you are using a long dowel, you can glue strips together to make them long enough.

Roll the paper around the pen tightly as shown in Picture 2, and then put glue along the last edge of the strip.  Roll it over a few times to push the edge down tight so the glue will stick!

Slide the tube off of the pen.

Make the Nose Cone by flattening a part of the top and folding about 1/4" of it over as shown in Picture 4.  Glue it down.

That was easy!  Lets make some fins.
