Both my boys have April birthdays, 2 weeks apart, so we are celebrating them with a big joint party next weekend. This year the theme they chose was Star Wars, as they have been watching the movies non-stop for the past few months (all except Episode III, which we think they are still too young to watch). So I spent the day making light saber party favors:
Eyelet Outlet & Brads. Tubes were filled with M&Ms. These light sabers were so easy that I figured I post a tutorial.
Start by cutting the cardstock - gray 2" x 2 1/2" and black 2"x 2 1/8"
I didn't have red brads and I really liked the rim on the brads, so I used both. However, all brad or all adhesive pearls would work just fine. These were quick and easy to make 20 in a couple of hours (while "helping" Dada do the taxes). And the kids are having so much fun filling them with M&Ms that they didn't want the filling part to be a "party activity" as I had envisioned...
Thanks for stopping by!
