Monday Challenge #85- Valentines For Kids

Hi everyone! I finally had a chance to upload the directions for my candy rocket project. :)
Lifesavers wrapped up to look like rockets. Easy and fun to make.
I stamped *You're out of this world*  from the Build A Valentine stamp set. I added the *kiss* or tip of the rocket using glue dots. I definitely would add a couple of glue dots for extra holding power. I cut the stars from the Doodlecharms cartridge cut at .70, .45., and 50". I glued the stars down with glossy accents. I added stickles for some sparkle.
I stamped a heart from the Build A Valentine stamp set and then wrote Sammy's name.
The lifesavers I had on hand measured 3" long. I cut the *flames* out of tissue paper by hand-super easy! 
I used a really strong tape (red tape) for the closing edge and ATG tape for the other two edges. I found I had more control wrapping the paper around the lifesaver roll. You can also see how I added flame layers to the edge. I added one piece of tissue paper at a time using ATG tape.
TIP: Try to slide the edge of the label towards the *kiss* or tip of the rocket, so it just covers the edge of the kiss--it really helps keep the kiss from falling off. Adds a little reinforcement.
Have a great week!
