Rocket Party Favor

Rocket Party Favor 7

Whether you’re heading off to a park to celebrate the 4th of July or gathering in a backyard for a cookout these rocket party favors are a fun and festive way to bring some red, white, and blue to your celebration of our country’s independence.  They look really cute as table centerpieces or placed on or beside each plate {or just the kid’s plates}.  They’re so quick and easy to make even the kids can help out with this project.  Win, win.

I got the idea from here, but adapted it all to my liking.  {Sorry about all of these pictures.  It was a very cloudy day so all of the whites look yellowish/brownish/grayish.}

Here’s what you’ll need:

:: empty toilet paper rolls
:: scrapbook paper ~ patterned or/and solid
:: double-sided tape or regular tape rolled
:: tissue paper
:: string
:: glue gun or white glue
:: candies

Here’s what you’ll need to do:

1. Measure and cut the scrapbook paper to fit around the toilet paper roll and tape or glue it in place.
2. Cut out paper for the cone top using this template {here} or make your own, roll it to make a cone shape, and tape the edges into place.
3. Run a thin bead of glue around the top edge of the toilet paper roll and position the cone over it, allow to dry.
4. Cut a piece of tissue paper and lay a few candies at the center.

5. Fold the tissue paper over, roll it up, and tie below the candies with the string.

Rocket Party Favor 46. Insert the candy roll into the rocket tube and then trim off the flare to the length you want it.

    How charming! Or should I say, Charmin? haha 😉 Will store this idea away. I really want that taffy. Where did you find taffy with that festive wrapping?

      Well howdy, Leilani. 🙂 Haha about the Charmin! I bought the taffy in the bulk section of our local Winco grocery store.

    So cute! That could easily be adapted to July 1st (Canada Day) as well! Will be watching fireworks with a few cousins and their youngsters and will have to make some to bring along!

      Yes, Maureen, you totally could. That would be fun for the children. Let me know how you like them. 🙂

    How totally fun! Best use of tp rolls ever! These would be really fun at an outer space/rocket party, too! Thanks for linking!

      I hadn’t thought of that but it sure would be fun at a little boy’s space party. How fun. Now I’m wishing I had a little boy to throw one for. 🙂
