Not toooo long ago I drafted a paper rocket ship for Graphic 45. While making the rocket ship I knew I could apply the same template to create something even cooler than a rocket... a sky-pirate zeppelin! And so the fleet of flying things in my studio has grown to include this papery bit of goodness.











The piece measures under 8" x 10"

 I love this so much! I am currently working on hanging things from my ceiling. I will have to check out the template. I already got a great start from Suereal.

Excellent design/geometry!  The white text on the red background that the balloon sports makes me think of the Coca Cola logo.
