Happy last day of June!!! It's Tiffany here. Can you believe it's already this time of year? I sure can't. I love it though. I'm back with another paper project that is super fun for all ages. It all started, when i saw this tutorial. I've been collecting my supplies for a couple weeks now, and then I found the tutorial that really tipped me off here. I used hot glue instead of staples. I wanted a more clean look. Let's get started.
- Toilet paper or paper towel rolls (as many as you would like to make. I have plenty left over, as I had family members collecting them for me too.)
-American Made patterned paper (so patriotic and beautiful)
-String - to attatch to the top of your rocket.
-Ribbon or other desired embellishments.
Then I made my streamers. I love to use up every inch of paper that I can so I made a bunch of strips from the scrap American Made paper. I was going to curl it with a pencil, but decided I wanted a smalled tassle and smaller swirl.
Then I used a crotchet hook to wrap my strips around.
I glued the streamers to the inside-bottom of the cone. Garnish them with a little matching ribbons.
And tie them up for a darling holiday decoration. We recently remodeled our kitchen. We got crazy and knocked out the wall between our living/family room and our kitchen. I now have a giant living space, so i put these in my kitchen window hanging from the curtain rod... so cute. My 2 year old loves to count them, and yell "3,2,1 BLASTOFF!" Did I mention they are super easy/quick to make.... perfect timing for that last minute decor. Wouldn't they be so cute on a little skewer too in some old fashioned bottles? You know, like little bottle rockets? Yeah, I thought so.
Check back tomorrow for another paper crafting idea with American Made.
