Introduction: 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
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
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.
