- Start by decorating the paper however you desire with your crayons or markers. We stuck our decorated papers onto construction paper to make them a bit sturdier.
- Stick some tinfoil onto the card stock, shiny side facing out.
- Make three folds (four sections) in your foil-covered cards. Put glue along one side and fold the cards into “triangular tubes.” Glue them shut and wait for them to dry.
- While the glue dries, cut little circles out of plastic bags. Put a strip of glue on one circle and drop glitter and/or sequins into the center. Then, drop the other plastic circle on top and let the whole thing dry. Now you have little pockets filled with glitter and sequins.
- Roll your decorated paper around your “triangular tube” and glue it down. (For younger kids, the project can end here if they get tired or distracted. For older kids—let’s persevere!)
- Cut out black circles from the card stock and make a hole through the center with a pencil. Then fold the circle over one end of the tube and tape it on. (We lost patience with waiting for glue to dry—tape to the rescue!).
- Finally, tape a glitter and sequin “pocket” onto the other end of the tube.
