To create these fun poppers, gather card board paper tubes, balloons, card stock, patterned paper, tape, and confetti.

  1. Tie the end of the balloon. Cut the top third of the balloon off.
  2. Stretch the balloon over the end of the cardboard tube, being careful not to bend the tube. Secure the balloon with tape around the edge. Make sure the balloon is stretched tightly across the top of the tube.
  3. Cover the cardboard tube with card stock and patterned paper. TIP: When wrapping cylindrical objects with paper, make the length wrap around at least one half time more. It helps keep the paper attached.
  4. Tie a DIY Party Fringe Tab to the end of the balloon, below the knot you created earlier. Trim the excess string.
