Step 2: Stand assembly

to create the stand, cut the tip of the safety pinso the tip is not sharp.Then crumple about 3-4sq.inches of tinfoil with the pin at about 45 degrees up.

Step 3: Now the rocket.

using wire cutters cut the tip of the match off.
now cut about 3" of tinfoil. place the match head on the left-hand side of the foil about 2cm.over from the edgestraighten the paperclip and place directly underneath. fold the top over the head+clip and then fold it left to right untill it is air tight.twist foil around clip tightly. you can now remove the paper cilp.

Step 4: Firing the rocket

set rocket on safety pin and aim away from anything flamable.depending on how well this is built it could go from a couple of inches to 20 feet. light another match and hold it under the enclosed match head.if built corectly it should take off
