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.

Hi Chrissy,

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.
