Rocket Favor Packaging

Send your guests to the moon with these lively rockets. They make playful favor packages for an Independence Day bash or a child's summer birthday. And constructing them is a snap -- no rocket science required.

Materials

  • Rocket Crackers Clip Art
  • 8 1/2-by-11-inch heavyweight matte paper
  • Double-sided tape
  • 8-by-5 1/2-inch pieces of white tissue paper
  • White twine
  • Hot-glue gun
  • American Starlights Candy

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Print the Rocket Crackers Clip Art onto paper using a color printer; cut out the shapes.

  2. Step 2

    Place the rectangular clip art blank side up. affix double-sided tape to 1 long edge. Fold a piece of tissue paper in half (so it measures 4 by 5 1/2 inches). Place the tissue fold at the bottom of the card stock, pressing it to the tape to secure.

  3. Step 3
