Step 1: Acquire Hardware

You gonna need some paper, nice and big. Construction paper is ideal, as it adds more strength

Step 2: SHAPE THE BODY

Wrap your paper around a tube of desired diameter, or just wing it. Wrap the paper in such a way that it is not snug against the tube.

Step 3: TAPE THE BODY

Tape that shiz up, you can never use too much.

Step 4: DECORATE AND ADD CONE

Decorate your rocket however you desire, and you will probably want a nose cone. You can make this out of a small piece of construction paper.

Step 5: FINS

Make triangles out of cardstock. Apply as neccesary.

Step 6: LAUNCH THAT BOY

Make sure everything is secure. If not- it will probably blow up. Then, LAUNCH!!! Tweak your design until it is perfect!
