Directions

A roll of Duck Tape traced onto cardstock and cut out. Then a small wedge cut out of the circle

Step 1

Trace a roll of Duck Tape® onto cardstock making a 3.75 in. diameter circle and cut out with scissors. Cut a wedge out of the circle and discard.

Circle from last step covered in red Duck Tape with a small amount of overhang on one side of the cut out

Step 2

Cover cardstock with 2 strips of tape and trim away excess, leaving a bit of tape overhanging on one side of the wedge (you'll use this to secure the circle into a cone).

Step 3

Bend cardstock into a cone and secure with overhanging tape.

Step 6

Cover the toilet paper roll with tape colors of choice starting at the bottom to secure the balloon in place. Set aside.

Step 7

Make the "wings." Place a piece of Duck Tape about 5 in. long face down on a flat surface. Lay a piece of parchment paper along one edge, covering about 2/8 in. of the tape's sticky side.

Tape sticking out the bottom of the parchment paper from the previous step folded over itself and overlap to match the other side

Step 8

Fold the tape in half, lengthwise so that it sticks to itself, leaving the edges still adhered to the parchment paper.

Step 9

Cut out "wing" shapes for your confetti rocket as shown. The side with parchment will be the side you adhere to your rocket. Make 2 of these for each rocket.

Step 10

Assemble the pieces. Fill the inside of the toilet paper tube with confetti, then temporarily secure the lid with small pieces of tape. Apply the wings by removing the parchment paper, fanning open the edges of tape and sticking to the rocket.
