Sometimes when I’m feeling uninspired in the crafting department, I need a little challenge. When some of my blogging buddies challenged me to create a party inspired project in just 15 minutes, it helped me get those creative juices flowing.
You all know I love a good party! And I’ve shown lots of fun party how to’s here in the past. With the 15 minute time constraint, I knew I wouldn’t be able to pull off anything party wise without the use of my Cricut.
Now you DO NOT have to have a Cricut to make these DIY party blowers. It just helps the project go a bit faster with it.
For this project you will need:
The reason for using the Cricut is to cut out all the fancy tassle papers to go around and finish off the party blowers. If you want to use your Cricut, download this Party Blower Tassle cut file. The file will open up in Cricut Design Space. Click make it since it is ready to go. Use the deluxe paper to cut out the tassles for the party blowers.
Cut 3″ x 7″ rectangles out of the colored printer paper while the tassles are being cut with the Cricut. Now if you don’t have a Cricut, you can just cut the tassle fringe using a pair of scissors.
DIY Party Blowers
To get started, fold your colored paper into 3rds length wise so that the middle flaps will over lap. Use the tape to seal that seam close and use a small piece to seal one end of the paper completely. This creates the blower part and needs to be able to hold the air.
From the sealed end of the blower, roll the paper up to the open end. Use a paper clip or a rubber band to hold the rolled shape as you roll all the paper blowers.
Stick a straw into the open end of the blower. Fold the sides over the straw, like folding the ends of a present you are wrapping. Use the tape to create a seal around the straw and the paper.
Use a thin line of glue to wrap the tassle fringe around the straw, just above where the straw and the paper blower meet.
That’s it! Now you have some fun party blowers to match any party theme!
The one thing my kids didn’t like was the fact that it doesn’t make any noise like the party blowers you buy at the party store. But parents, we know that is a blessing! The kids were playing with these in the car and not driving me insane! 🙂
I appreciate these gals giving me the 15 minute party challenge. It was good for getting me out of my creative funk.
Are you planning a party? We’ve had some fun ones over the years. Some of our favorites have been Easy Luau Party Ideas, Ultimate Gaming Party , Purple Birthday Party, and Mr. C’s Goldfish Birthday Party.
And these DIY party blowers wouldn’ve been a fun addition to any of these parties.
Happy 15 minute Crafting!
