ROCKET by Rachel Katz

 

Use 2 squares colored sides up.

 
 

 
  1 Put one square of paper on the table.
Fold the bottom edge up to meet the top edge. Crease. Unfold.
2 Fold the left side over to meet the right side. Crease. Unfold. 3 Turn over. Put it down so it looks like a diamond.
Fold the left point over to meet the right point. Crease. Unfold.
4 Fold the top point down to the bottom point.  
     
 

 
  5 Pinch the triangle between your fingers and push downward toward the middle. 6 It looks like this. 7 Using the top flaps only, bring the folded edges downward to meet the center crease.  
 
 

 
  8 Turn over. Repeat on the back. 9 One part of the rocket is now complete. It looks like this.
Now go back to Step 1 and make another one, using the other square of paper..
10 Open the last fold on each flap, on the one you
just made.
11Fold the outer folded edges down to the newly formed creases, as shown. Repeat on the other three flaps.  
         
 

 

 
    12 Push the lower points of the first part between the layers of the second part.
