YOU WILL NEED
Toilet paper rolls or paper towel rolls 12 x 12 glitter paper 8.5 x 11.5 vellum paper Aluminum foil tape (found at Home Depot) Electric tape in black Buttons Scrapbook embellishments Hot glue gun & sticks Scrapbook adhesive
Print your party invites on vellum paper within a 4" x 5" space. You can print two per vellum sheet.
Trim to 4.5" x 6". (Double check this measurement just to be sure.) I started with toilet paper rolls, but decided the paper towel rolls were a little bit easier.
Put a strip of adhesive on each end of the blank side of the vellum. Wrap around paper roll.
Cut your 12" x 12" glitter paper in half (you will have 2 - 6" x 12" pieces.) If using toilet paper rolls, go ahead and roll your glitter paper. I used an left over gift wrapping roll to get the right size. If using a paper towel roll, I left about .5" between the invitation and where I added the glitter paper. This allowed for a little bit longer light saber. Use hot glue to secure the roll.
Next add a 6"strip of the aluminum duct tape to the bottom of the glitter paper tube. Its super shiny, but also wrinkles. I cut a 6" inch strip, then took off the backing and added it to the saber.
To connect the glitter tube to the toilet paper roll, use the electric tape.
To finish it, I added another piece of electrical tape at the base of the toilet paper roll, and buttons made from actual buttons and scrapbooking embellishments.
Wasn't that fun?
Enjoy a Yoda Soda (lime sherbet + lemon-lime soda) and you're ready to party...
