Mini Party Blowouts

4 3 12

These sweet little party blowouts are tiny, colorful and simple to whip up!

  • Paper Straws
  • Tissue Paper
  • Glassine Bags or Wrapping Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Tape


Cut strips from your wrapping paper/glassine bags about 1″ wide and 6″ long. Apply glue along the long edge and across one of the short edges.

11 Fold over long ways and press to the glue, but don’t press the short side down yet. Insert a paper straw and after removing it, press the strip flat, keeping the glued together edge in the middle. Now you can press the short side together.

10 Cut your paper straws into thirds and insert one into the un-glued edge of your strip. Tape around it to secure. Then use another straw to help you create a roll-up.

9 Cut a piece of tissue paper about 2″ by 3″ and fringe the long side. Tape one edge to the straw, then apply glue to the rest and wind it around.

8 All done!

1 Time to party!

6 The blowouts will automatically roll back up better the longer they are left rolled tightly.

2 These would be perfect for little ones but are definitely still appropriate for an adult celebration too!
