Roll the 8.5" by 11" sheet of paper on the PVC pipe loosely (if it is too tight then the Rocket will not fit in the Launcher).
Use scotch tape to tape down the roll of paper.
After taping the roll of paper, set it aside.
Here is a link to the Nose Cone's template. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6VpafTHktYAMnVlSEJ4cFRzZVk/view?usp=sharing
Cut out the a nose cone
Fold side A over to side B. Then fold side C on top of A and B sides.
Tape the back of side C and A together.
Grab your roll of paper on the PVC pipe and scramble about half an inch invert. This will make it easier to put the nose cone on it.
Tape the nose cone and the roll of paper together. Make sure it is completely sealed.
For this step, we are going to make fins. There are two ways to make fins. One is to use 3" by 3" post-it notes and the other way is to make 3 diagonal cuts.
For the post-it note fins, fold each post-it note in half to form a triangle.
Then fold one side of the triangle in about 1/4".
Repeat Step 11 and 12 to the rest of your fins.
Tape all the fins to the Rocket.
Another way to make fins is to do Diagonal cuts to the button part of your Rocket. Make sure to have even space between each cut.
We usually do 3 cuts, however, it is up to you how many fins you want to put in your Rocket.
