With my son's Robot/Outer Space themed party, I was trying to come up with something cute for the favors. I considered the 3D Robots from the Robotz cartridge but, I didn't want to get in over my head. So, I was thinking a tubed filled rocket. I got the tubes from my mom and then covered them in scrapbook paper that had gears all over it. I knew that I would make cone tops but, didn't know what I would do to stand them up. When I had almost decided to lay them down, my son took some magnetic clothespins I had and put them on the bottom of one of the tubes. A 6 year old genius!
So, I cut the top cones using the circle on George and Basic shapes, cut at 6" and then I cut them in half and glued them together. I bought some standard clothepins and then covered them with the leftover paper from the circles that I cut. I added the 'loot' and some yellow, orange and red plastic Easter grass tied together, hanging from the bottom, to look like flames of the rocket. They turned out Super Cute!!!
