Learn how to make an origami spaceship with an attachable flame. This origami rocket is great either sitting on a flat surface or hanging up in a display or mobile.
I am a little concerned that this origami rocket looks like a missile. I guess it could be either. But I was going for a spaceship.
This is a continuation from the easy origami rocket I posted before. It just has more refinement. It works best with solid coloured paper because you don’t see the other side, apart from a tiny little bit along the lower seam. The origami moon.

You will need:
▸ 2 sheets of square paper. Example size: 20 x 20 cm (rocket) 10 x 10 cm (fire). The sheet for the fire should be half the size.
Final model size: 16 x 6 cm
Other sizes: 30 x 30 cm & 15 x 15 cm | 21 x 21 cm & 10.5 x 10.5 cm | 15 x 15 cm & 7.5 x 7.5 cm
I love your little vintage rocket! I don’t think it looks like a missile at all. Looks like a Buck Rogers style spaceship to me. You’re right. Getting the flame into the back end was tricky but I accomplished it. I used a heavy foil paper for the rocket and needed the flame to keep it closed. I think a bunch of them would look great as a mobile, maybe with some moons and stars in the mix.
Your little silver rocket looks so cute and nice! It is a little tricky, worst of all, my daughter came along and pulled the flame out as soon as I got it in, she thought it was hilarious. 😀
