Stacey's Birthday Ribbon and Rhinestones Blog Hop Last Day

Stacey's Birthday Ribbon and Rhinestones Blog Hop

Last Day

I want to thank EVERYONE for all the wonderful comments you have left for me along this hop...I smile HUGE when I read them and I really really appreciate it =D Today is the last day of this hop and I have in store for you a really fun tutorial for making your own party blowers...these are just adorable and you have to give one a whirl =D Here we go!!!

Here is the party blower I created...are these cute or what??
Let's walk through the steps =D

Step one:

Cut a piece of DSP to 2 1/2 x 12 inches.Score lengthwise at 1″ and 2″,  leaving an 1/2 inch flap.

Step two:

Apply sticky strip or thin double sided tape to length of 1/2 inch flap and along bottom edge. It is important to not have any gaps. Fold closed as shown 

Step three:

Roll blower around pencil starting from bottom edge.  Tie rubber band or string around the blower and leave for 24 hours so that the shape holds.

Step Four:

Cut a piece of cardstock 2 1/2 inch by 1 1/2 inch.  Roll into a cylinder and apply sticky tape. Insert the cylinder into the blower opening and wrap seal with tape. It needs to be a tight fit. You can also put ribbon around the tape to conceal it if it shows. 

YAY!! We made party blowers =D and now to show you some blog candy I have in store for you...tomorrow I will be selecting a random winner through for a lucky follower who left comments to win these stickles! Winner will receive THREE bottles of Crystal Stickles
