These paper retro rocket decorations from Corinne Bradd are the perfect space-age addition to your crafting. With ready-to-go templates and SVG files by your side, you’ll be thrilled to know that there’s no rocket science involved in this project – thank goodness for that. Plus, there are limited supplies required so you’ll be able to whip up a paper retro rocket in your colourway of choice faster than you can say ‘lift off’! If you’ve got scrap cardstock to hand, now’s the time to use it… we’re always trying to find ways to cut down on waste and do our bit for the planet.

Retro Rockets

You will need:
Templates or SVG files
Cardstock: various colours, mirri
Punch, hole
Adhesives: glue, double-sided tape

1 Download the rocket templates or SVG files from our website and cut them out. Trace the main body of a rocket, the largest flames and largest circular windows onto the reverse of silver mirri card, then trim.

2 Use coloured cardstock to trace and cut out the individual components of the rocket and flames. Make sure no two colours are sitting next to each other and remember to flip over the fin parts so they make a pair.

3 Arrange and glue the elements onto the main body and flames. Fix the flames to the bottom of the rocket with double-sided tape. Use a hole punch to cut lots of dots from leftover metallic and coloured card, then secure to the banded sections of the rocket.

If you prefer to learn visually, then Corinne Bradd has got you covered over on The Crafts Channel.
