Step one

Fold 1 A4 watercolour Sheet in Half, open up and then paint all over with Derivan Black Ink.

Step two 

You now have a template of the rocket with just one half of the design. Fold your other A4 sheet in half so they match up and draw the other half of the rocket on this piece of paper. When you cut it out, you will be cutting through both pieces of paper to create the full rocket

Step three 

Start with a paper and cut out the rocket design. Then, don’t forget the window by cutting out a hole in the top of the rocket shape.

Step four 

Rocket's fins are going to be the pop up component of the card. So you will need to fold them with a crease  When you open the card your message from the rocket will pop out. In order to make this happen, they will need to be pre-creased

Step Five

Using the Derivan red acrylic Ink paint the body of the Rocket and then paint the fins with Derivan Turquoise acrylic ink. These colours will make the rocket stand out. The red and turquoise will act as a contrast, making it pop.

Step six 

The card needs to stand on its own. The fins are not a decoration - they're the rocket's stabilizers! Gluing the fins to the card is an important step. You need to make sure that they're positioned correctly so that the rocket stands vertically. To do this, you will need a Derivan Polymer gloss varnish and a paint brush. Do one fin at a time and apply the varnish then flip over, line up with with the centre line of the card and leave to dry

Step seven 

Once your rocket is dry, open the card up and bend out the rocket. Fold the centre line outwards and find a favourite picture of you and your dad! Print the image, making sure it is big enough to fill up the window on your rocket.

Step eight 

In this step fold your chosen image  in half and apply some polymer gloss varnish then slide the picture in under the round window *make sure the fold is in line with the fold in the card - press down to adhere.  Now you and Dad will be able to fly around the world and explore different places without ever having to leave home!

Step nine

In this step use Derivan Student white acrylic paint, and paint the moon using a brush  to create your out space back ground

Step ten 

Use derivan kindy glitz to create the stars to go with your moon and make sure to put some stripes on the rocket to make it go faster. The derivan glitter glue will really make your rocket pop.
