Kids can make them!

Materials

  • Aluminum foil
  • Tissue paper
  • Stickers

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Tear off aluminum foil 20 inches long. Fold in half twice, long sides together, or cuff; lay cuff with opening toward top.Fold 20-inch-wide tissue paper in half lengthwise twice; lay inside V of the cuff, folded edge up, so bottom edge is just below center of cuff.

    Fold foil strip in half again, folding up from the bottom (this will hold the tissue in place).

    I don't think tissue paper is the right call for this craft -- it's way too flimsy. Maybe if you cut it much shorter than the instructions suggest it would be OK, but it's definitely not as sturdy and neat as the photo would lead youto believe. Disappointed.
