Instructions

  1. Measure about 15” down from one end of the foam sheet and mark a line across the sheet with a pencil.  Use a pencil to draw a tapered point at this end of the sheet for the nose of the rocket.  Cut out the nose with the cutter, save the scrap pieces for the wings.
  2. Draw the wings as shown onto the scrap pieces of foam and cut out with the cutter.
  3. Draw rounded corners at the bottom of the rocket and cut off with the cutter.  Use the scrap pieces of foam as sanding blocks to sand all the cut edges smooth.
  4. Glue the wings in place.  Paint the rocket red white and blue as shown or give it your own look.   Paint the metal ring white.  Let dry.
  5. Lay the metal ring on a piece of tin foil and trace.  Cut out the tin foil circle and glue in place at the top of the rocket for the window.  Glue the metal ring to the foil circle.
  6. Use the ribbon as trim to help hide any uneven lines where two paint colors come together.
  7. Glue the cork board in place on the rocket.  Glue ribbon around the edges.
