Happy Independence Day!

By Kyetra Belton July 3, 2013

You will need:

  • White tissue paper
  • String or ribbon
  • Scissors or paper trimmer
  • Hot glue or glue dots
  • 8 1/2  x 11 Patterned cardstock
  • 8 1/2  x 11 Solid cardstock
  • Candy or small toys

What to do:

Cut your patterned paper in half to make it 4 1/4 x 11. Also, cut your white tissue paper to this size. Turn the patterned paper pattern side down and glue the tissue paper on the bottom, about an inch overlapping.

Next, roll paper and tissue into a tube, about the size of a toilet paper roll and secure with hot glue or glue dots. Cinch the tissue at the bottom and tie with ribbon or string.

Now for the fun part - fill the tube with candy or small toys for your guests or friends.

Take the solid colored cardstock and draw an 8 inch circle. Cut it out and then in half to make a fan-like shape. Roll this piece into a cone. Use glue dots or hot glue to attach the cone to the top of the rocket.
