Rocket Poppers

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

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 inch over lapping. 

Next, roll the 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.
