Use the template to cut the main rocket ship shape from red card. Cut a hole for the window.
Cut an extra pair of fin-shapes from red card, and layer these on to the main rocket shape using sticky foam pads.
Use the template to snip paper shapes to decorate your rocket ship – the nose cone, window frame and some colourful stripes!
Add a blast of jagged yellow card to your rocket ship and decorate with dotty orange triangles.
Carefully cut star shapes from the front of your card blank. Add a star-shaped panel of white card in the lower right corner and handwrite your birthday greeting.
Fix the rocket ship to your card front, raised on sticky foam pads. Finish with a pair of blue buttons.
